Our English Curriculum


At Rice Lane Primary School, our English Curriculum complies with the statutory requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum.

 

The key elements of this are:

 

Spoken Word – this is delivered across the curriculum, with opportunities for pupils to use in a range of contexts, including drama, role-play, presentation, discussion and debate. Talk for Writing is used throughout the school to embed different features of genres and grammar. 


Word Reading- This is delivered primarily through Letters and sounds in Foundation stage and KS1 and through daily guided reading sessions in KS2. In KS1 individual reading takes place to directly teach skills and allow for individual comprehension skills to be assessed on a regular basis. 

 

Comprehension – Weekly comprehension activities take place in each year group, from year 1 to year 6, focusing on specific skills. 

 

Writing – transcription including spelling- This is delivered through our No nonsense Spelling Scheme, with opportunities for parents/carers to support with practice at home through weekly spelling homework. For further suggestions on how to support your child with spelling please refer to our Spelling Booklet for Parents. 

The spelling objectives for each year group can be found by opening the document below.

Spelling Pathway

Grammar, Vocabulary and Punctuation - These elements are taught discreetly as age appropriate skills as well as within the context of reading and writing activities within each English unit and with support from Grammar Hammer Resources.
