We all use English: It also allows them to record their individual opinions and ideas. Our pupils are introduced to a range of genres which enable them to write appropriately and imaginatively for any task they undertake during guided groups or through continuous provision. Pupils are taught correct letter formation in regular handwriting sessions. This enables them to form legible handwriting and progress to a fluent cursive style.
High quality writing is strongly linked to the development and the love of reading, so we stimulate pupils' imaginations by providing an environment that is rich in good quality literature to motivate children to write. This is done through the use of our high quality picture books, novels, poetry, our IPC topics and non-fiction text through Power of Reading.
In addition to this we expose children to firsthand experience, where they then get the opportunity and motivation to write for a purpose in a range of genres. At Etz Chaim, the children, in both Key Stage 1 and 2 are provided with the opportunity to write in a range of genres through our topics, such as:. Adventure Stories - An adventure story often has a cliff-hanger before the final resolution.
The new English curriculum has a big emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar also known as SPaG. As well as being able to spell words correctly, use a wide range of vocabulary and punctuate well, they need to grasp the meaning of grammatical terms such as noun, verb, adjective, prefix, pronoun and adverb.
Along with this they will learn what phrases and clauses are and how to use them, understand what connectives are and how they work, know how to turn a question into a command, and so on. This terminology can be a stumbling block even for children who are otherwise good at reading and writing. Reading is the key skill children need to learn in order to access the whole curriculum. As a school we believe that the teaching of reading is of paramount importance. We know that selecting the right school for a child is an important decision, and we would like to assist you in any way that we can.
We invite you to visit, talk, observe and inquire about our wonderful school. The first step in the admissions process is to make an appointment to tour our beautiful campus.
