In English we implement the National Curriculum through a text based approach. Here we see children engaging in texts from leading children's authors, learning from the best. We deliver English in units of work. Children need to secure knowledge, understanding and skills in decoding and comprehension in reading and in composition, transcription, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation in writing.
In the units there is a key focus on the ‘Immerse, Analyse, Write’ teaching sequence to ensure that children have opportunities to practise the key skills whilst building the understanding and knowledge to apply these skills across a range of genres. Each year group has a list of suggested genres and each plan includes Statutory Requirements, previous knowledge, possible texts and suggested teaching sequence.
