Christ The King Catholic Primary School Learning, growing and praying together with Christ Our King

English

Here at Christ the King Catholic Primary school we are committed to providing an exciting, engaging and progressive English curriculum for our children. We want our children to become enthusiastic, engaged readers and writers who develop a life-long love of books and a passion for writing.  

 

Speaking and listening skills are built into all aspects of the English curriculum with the aim being that every child is able to communicate their thoughts, ideas and opinions clearly and succinctly, as well as listening to and reflecting on the ideas of others. 

 

Christ the King School have developed an English Curriculum which ensures high quality texts are being used in classes.  Children are exposed to challenging language and as a result, our children are developing a love of reading and writing

During 2020, prior to lockdown, we had been working tirelessly in partnership with our Governors, Claire Flynn and our very supportive PTA to refurbish our KS2 library. Below are pictures taken throughout the process.Since we have returned to school, the library has been used and enjoyed every day by pupils throughout Key Stage Two.

Throughout the year, our children are exposed to additional speaking, reading and writing opportunities.  During 2019-20120, we will be visited by established authors: Jo Cotterill, Helen Cooper and Jennifer Killick.  We are also working collaboratively with the other schools in our academy (both primary and secondary) to invite another author, Nick Cook, who will work specifically with boys  from all schools to encourage them to develop a love of reading.
