English

The development of spoken language, reading and writing are at the heart of everything we do at Colman Junior School, both in English sessions and across the curriculum. Our curriculum is carefully planned to link to a key shared text for each term and these stories inspire our own writing. In this way we aim to foster a love of both reading and writing for pleasure. The teaching of spelling, punctuation and grammar is embedded within this approach whilst also taught discretely. Look out for the Big Write super heroes and the Big Reading spies who help us to develop our reading and writing skills as we move through the school.
