At Pennyhill, we believe in developing pupils’ abilities in reading, writing and speaking and listening. Pupils develop their skills within a varied English curriculum and are given opportunities to further apply this through other subject areas.
By the time the children leave our school, we aim for them to be able to read with confidence, fluency and understanding; showing an interest in books and reading for enjoyment. They should also develop a wide vocabulary, using this knowledge to write in a variety of forms and for different purposes. Discussion is an integral part of learning and children should be able to use this to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas.
Upon this foundation, all future learning is built. Therefore, we believe in providing the best possible start to your child’s learning journey in English.
