THE ENGLISH CURRICULUM

At St David’s we strive to ensure all pupils are equipped with the necessary tools to be confident speakers, listeners, readers and writers. Our aim is to inspire and motivate pupils to ensure they reach their full potential, as well as equipping them with the essential skills they will take forward to secondary school.

In order to ensure pupils make good progress in each year group, a range of grammar, spelling, reading and writing activities are taught, and these are tailored to meet the needs of the individual child. As far as possible, links are made to other areas of the curriculum and encompass pupils’ interests in order to maintain high levels of engagement and foster a passion for reading and writing.

Pupils enjoy exciting and memorable trips to places such as the Globe Theatre and in-school events are organised such as ‘Roald Dahl Day’ which bring their learning to life.
