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'.
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.
