Justification

Explain why we teach this subject. This text box can be stretched to the right. Additionally, you can use the space to the right to add an image, images or video.

The teaching of English has a prominent place in education and in society. At Nantwich Primary Academy, a  high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them.

 

With a high focus on reading, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.

AIMS (Adapt to your subject)

Learning a foreign language should broaden a pupil's horizons and prevent them from growing up in an insular society, becoming aware of amazing life opportunities and experiences from other cultures: In short, a high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Our aims are clarified in more detail in the following list:

  • To provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language so that the foundations for continuing language study in Key Stage 3 are set in place

  • To enable pupils to communicate ideas, facts and feelings in writing and speech

  • To provide the opportunity to use their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary

  • To focus on practical understanding in a modern foreign language

  • To give them the skills and resilience to apply their acquisition of a new language to new situations

NATIONAL CURRICULUM (Adapt to subject and change links)

The national curriculum for languages in Key Stage 2 aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • To understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources

  • To speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation

  • To write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt

  • To discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied
