At Filby Primary school we believe that the English curriculum should develop a child’s love of reading, writing and discussion. By the end of Year Six we intend for our children to have developed a love of writing and be able to express their thoughts and ideas clearly and creatively through their written work. We recognise the importance of encouraging a culture where children take pride and care in their work, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts. We want our children to be passionate, responsible readers, who read fluently and widely and are able to express preferences and opinions about the texts that they explore. We want them to read for pleasure and to have access to a range of text types, genres and authors which introduce and teach diversity and inclusion in order for them to make informed and respectful opinions about literature and the world around them. We want to inspire children to be confident in the art of speaking and listening and create learners who can use discussion to communicate and further their learning. Filby Primary school believes that a secure basis in English skills is crucial to a high quality education and will equip our children with the tools they need to participate fully as an aspirational member of society.
