Welcome to English at Sacred Heart

As a school, in English we follow the Literacy Pathways to writing for our English curriculum. This ensures that we have a wide and varied selection of high quality texts from across all genres and that there are many opportunities for all children to produce fabulous writing. This approach allows us to effectively teach a high quality grammar curriculum which in turn enable pupils to produce well written, engaging and inspiring writing. 

We have adopted the Wandle system to teach phonics and reading in EYFS and Key stage 1. ALL staff have received training so that as a school we have a consistent approach to the teaching and learning of reading and spelling.

From Year 2 upwards we use the literacy Company’s pathways to spelling programme – where children are taught spelling and the associated rules through a range of engaging lessons.

Children from Key stage one up to year 6, have a login to Reading Plus which they can access at home and at school. This programme enables children to develop fluency, speed, endurance and accuracy with their reading whilst also developing comprehension skills and a wide vocabulary.
