English

At Kellington we believe that literacy and communication are key life skills. Through the English curriculum, we will help children develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners. We want children to enjoy, experience and appreciate a variety of literature.

Kellington follows the NC 2014 and EYFS 2014 as a basis for our English teaching and learning.

In EYFS language and literacy development are incorporated in all areas of learning through a range of structured play situations and purposeful role-play.  Children are given opportunities to share and enjoy a wide range of rhymes, songs, poetry and books in an environment which reflects the importance of language through signs, notices and books. Children’s mark making and writing is valued and encouraged and children are provided with opportunities to see adults writing.  A suitably differentiated phonics session is taught each day and for the Reception children there is also a daily guided reading from the spring term. 

All children in Key Stages 1 and 2 have a daily English lesson which incorporates appropriately differentiated opportunities to access a variety of activities including speaking and listening, role play, reading and writing, focused word and sentence activities, guided group and independent work. Children in KS1 have an appropriately differentiated daily phonics session whilst those in KS2 who have not completed Phase 5 phonics continue to receive specific phonics teaching at least three times each week. Differentiated guided reading also takes place in KS1 and KS2 between 3 and 5 times each week. 

All children are encouraged to develop as independent learners accessing a range of resources such as word banks, phonics mats, dictionaries, thesauruses and learning walls.  Children use ICT in English lessons where appropriate to enhance their learning, for example whilst drafting and publishing their writing, studying word origins, accessing ebooks, etc.
