In Reception we love listening and learning nursery rhymes. We have story time every day and we love learning new stories. As well as reading, we practice our letter formation daily and when we are ready we start to write sentences – which develops into different types of writing including stories, instructions and poetry.
Year 1 and Year 2
In Key Stage 1 we read lots of different types of texts including, fairy stories, adventure stories and non-fiction texts such as reports and postcards. Before we write a story, we orally learn the stories with actions so we can retell it off by heart- it is always lots of fun! We develop our writing skills to enable us to write longer pieces which include more punctuation and grammar features.
In Key Stage 2 we read lots of different types of texts including, horror stories, adventure stories and non-fiction texts such as newspaper reports and instructions. We love reading and listening to the different types of books that are in our English lessons. Our writing gets longer and we have more of a focus on editing and improving our writing.
