Literacy is essential to everyday life and it is vital that our pupils become confident readers and writers in order to be successful in education but also in the wider world. That is why our knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff provide a language-rich English curriculum that promotes oracy, reading and writing, developing an enjoyment of books and literature that will support children's learning across the curriculum while also enriching their lives.
The engaging, progressive approach to English at Milton Park Primary enables pupils to be effective communicators, to read and respond to a wide range of texts with confidence, and to use a range of skills to write convincingly for different purposes and audiences.
However, English does not stop with the English lesson. All our children enjoy access to wide range of stories, poems and other texts through book events, the library and story-time. Book corners in each class reflect our reading culture and offer a great selection to entice even the most reluctant reader.
The powerful English skills developed by our children then reach out and into our broad and balanced curriculum where they enhance our pupils' responses and engagement in a variety of subjects.
