Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening

Students will explore a high quality text using the Power of Reading approach that develops a range of key skills and competencies through raising engagement and depth of understanding in literature and poetry. Children will explore:

  • language and vocabulary development
  • develop inference, deduction and comprehension skills
  • identifying and exploring cross-curricular links
  • writing in different contexts through active activities
  • engage with and reading for pleasure  – a critical determinant in success, understanding identity and improving empathy

Carefully chosen texts will enable students to explore complex moral issues with maturity and confidence. They will reflect on themes explored in literature and reasons behind choices of words and ideas chosen by authors.

 

Syllabus and Assessment:

The syllabus will be based on the KS2 UK National Curriculum. Assessment will be a combination of formative and summative assessment, focusing on building a holistic picture of the student.

Summative assessment will be based on end of term checkpoints using Rising Stars for English in Years 4 and 5 and SATs in Year 6. These cover Autumn, Spring and Summer terms so children can be accurately assessed depending on when in the year they join.

When?

Monday and Friday at 9.30 am GMT on Zoom.

Each lesson is one hour long. In total, you child will receive 18 hours of direct academic instruction.
