Our English intent
At Collingwood Primary we aim to instil in our pupils a lifelong love of English through a text based approach, exploiting links across our curriculum to develop and broaden their understanding of the world in which they live. We immerse our children in the texts, equipping them with the skills needed to be a great writer who produces creative, engaging writing across a range of genres. By promoting the importance of vocabulary, we will provide our pupils with the key to unlock the world around them. Our carefully sequenced and purposeful curriculum will enable children to access lands: known and fantastical, modern and historical and home and abroad. We strongly promote reading for both knowledge and for pleasure, through the exploration of high quality texts which enable our pupils to develop their creativity, raise their aspirations and create brave, resilient writers who are not afraid to independently ‘have a go’.
Please look at our English overviews which give you a breakdown of what we teach in each year group.
At Collingwood Primary School, our Reading provision aims to develop a love of reading acquired through varied and enriching exposure to wide ranging texts, enabling pupils to broaden their knowledge of the world around them.
