At Fishburn Primary School we aim to develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary in every subject. English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching; for pupils, understanding the language provides access to the whole curriculum. Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.
Key Stage one pupils develop their phonic and early reading skills using Sounds-Write. Children then move onto Dandelion readers.
Key Stage two pupils study whole class novels and free reading with Titans Gauntlet books for catch up and intervention. Titans Gauntlet books are high interest and accessible for older readers.
