Welcome to our English Curriculum Page
At Cadmore End School, English is of great importance. Through our English lessons and all areas of learning, our children learn to speak and write fluently so they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Our children are encouraged to read a wide range of texts for pleasure as well as studying and exploring high quality texts through their English lessons.
 

Grammar, punctuation, spelling, handwriting and composition are vital English skills. Phonics is taught explicitly in the Early Years Foundation Stage, KS1 and where necessary in KS2. We use Letters and Sounds, a resource published by the Department for Education and Skills to support and enhance our teaching of high quality phonic work to teach our children how to read and spell words. As the children move into KS2, they are taught set spellings every week and given the opportunity to apply the spelling rules they have learnt across the curriculum. Punctuation and Grammar are taught explicitly in KS2 as well as being an integral part of our English Lessons.
