‘Learning to Succeed’

English

English at Homerswood

At Homerswood, we aim to develop, in all of our children, a positive attitude towards all aspect of English. We want the children to learn to love reading for pleasure, to feel pride in their learning, and to enjoy the freedom for expression that writing provides.

 

We provide a range of learning opportunities and study a range of genres across the school. Children get to know authors and use strong examples as models for their own writing. In addition, our cross curricular writing provides further opportunities for children to 'show what they know'.

'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.
