English in Key Stage 2

Our Key Stage 2 English curriculum continues to develop pupil’s spoken language, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary. We teach our pupils to speak clearly, to convey their ideas fluently and confidently and to ask questions. We know the value of excellent vocabulary and this is developed and practised across our curriculum constantly. The carefully selected high quality texts encourages our pupils to express their ideas, discuss their ideas and to develop more sophisticated vocabulary. Our pupils are encouraged to read for pleasure and to read widely through our reading scheme and school library. We continue to build on Key Stage 1 writing skills so that our pupils have the stamina and ability to become accomplished writers.
