Great Harwood St John's CE English Intent
The English Curriculum at St John’s aims to promote good speaking and listening skills with an important emphasis on vocabulary. It will provide a firm foundation in phonics to enable children to acquire early reading and writing skills. These skills will be nurtured so children take pride in their writing and develop a love of learning.
We enjoyed having an author in school.
Look at the books we have been reading.
Every class in school has visited our local library. The children enjoyed listening to the librarian read to them and then being able to explore all the different books.
World Book Day
The Owl class children went on a treasure hunt. They searched through reading books looking for glimmering pieces of treasure.
The KS1 children visited Tesco to spend their World Book day voucher. The children couldn't wait to open their books and start reading.
The owl children buddied up with Heron and Robin class children. Everyone enjoyed listening to and reading stories.
