English in Key Stage 1

English (language and literacy) is an essential skill within the curriculum.

Children are expected to develop their confidence and skills in all subjects  not exclusively  within English lessons.
Children are expected to have a good command of the spoken language.


At Banks Road we believe on of the most important things we do at school is to teach your child to read and write.  Here is some information about what we teach in English, how we teach it and how you can help your child at home.  If you are unsure about any details or would like further information please ask your child's class teacher.  We want to help.
