English at Clough and Risegate is a central part of the curriculum and covers many aspects of learning, from Phonics and Early Reading to Writing and Speaking and Listening. These are the foundations for learning with Phonics being the stepping stone into learning to read and accessing the wider curriculum.
As a school we promote our love of reading and words. We have been working on reducing the 'vocabulary gap' with all of our children. This is through sharing stories, explaining new words and encouraging everyone to have a love of finding out about new words and using them. If you look in the individual tabs below you will find out about our Phonics and Early Reading, Reading, Writing.
