English (inc Phonics)
The aim of our English curriculum at Moseley Church of England Primary is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping every child with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and developing their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
The National Curriculum breaks English up into different strands –
- Spoken language and listening skills
- Reading – word reading and comprehension
- Writing - transcription (spelling and handwriting)
- - composition (articulating ideas and structuring them in speech and writing)
- Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
