Our Text Led English Curriculum

The books on our text led curriculum have been carefully chosen to provide a varied diet for the children as it is important that they hear, study or experience as many texts in as many genres as possible.

When selecting the list we carefully considered themes, challenge, genre and the cultural relevance a text has. 

Children are immersed in text, talk and vocabulary to challenge and expand their experience of language. Then, through careful modelling and targeted feedback, their ability to communicate in a variety of written contexts is developed. 


No Nonsense Spelling

No Nonsense Spelling is a complete spelling programme designed to meet the needs of the National Curriculum in a manageable way.

No Nonsense spelling links to and builds upon the children's phonic knowledge whilst also looking at word families and letter groups to aid pupils make connections and apply spelling patterns to both known and unknown words.
