English Curriculum at Beech Grove Primary School

  • At Beech Grove Primary School we follow the National Curriculum for English in all year groups, and have modified our topic planning to enable the skills taught in English sessions to be applied in a wider context.
  • In addition to this, our assessments have shown us that the children we teach will benefit from the provision of structured phonics sessions and more opportunities to develop a wider range of sentence types.
  • To this end we have implemented daily Read Write Inc. sessions from Reception to Y3, and use Fresh Start as a targeted intervention in Y5 and Y6.
  • We have also included key sentence types to be taught in each year group throughout school in our medium term planning.
