Primary and Nursery School

‘Learning to Succeed’

English

At Homerswood School we know that being able to read, write and communicate are essential skills for life. We aim to develop in our children a love of reading that will continue with them long after they leave primary school.We teach children the skills for reading in order for children to read for pleasure as well support their learning across the curriculum.

 

We teach children the skill of writing in order to develop in them the confidence and skills to write for a range of purposes and audiences.

 

We aim to develop our children's speaking and listening skills so that they are confident speakers who are able to express their views and opinions for a variety of audiences.

 

We follow the principles set out in the National Curriculum and English is taught daily from Nursery to Year 6.

 

'How We Teach Reading' Briefing : Thursday 2 October 2014

Our Brand New Library

 

Our library has had a fabulous overhaul and is now ready for use. Each class will visit the library weekly and choose books to read at home. We will advertise the brand new books through assemblies. In January, we are hoping to open the library up to families one day after school so you too can access an opportunity to read with your children.

Knebworth House Short Story Competition
Congratulations to Abbi (Y4) who was shortlisted in the Knebworth House Short Story writing competition last week. She was one of 12 finalists chosen from 200 entries. An amazing achievement.
Well done to all the other children who entered in Years 4 to 6, the feedback was fabulous from the judges and the standard was exceptionally high. If you would like to read the short story entries they are held in a black file outside Mrs Bryony's office.
