Igniting a passion for literature and developing writers for the real world.
Our Principles of English Teaching
We know that great English happens in our school when:
Children are writing for real audiences and purposes.
Children are motivated to write and strive to achieve their best through editing and redrafting.
Children present their ideas in a variety of ways and do so with pride.
Children enjoy reading a variety of genres written by a variety of authors.
Children complete varied tasks of achievable but challenging difficulty.
All children regardless of their background, needs or abilities become confident, fluent readers.
Children can communicate their ideas with clarity and confidence
We understand that great readers become great writers, which is why at Acton, we use quality books as a stimulus for our writing. As part of our writing journey we use the Read to Write scheme as a basis for our writing. Each term every class studies two different texts to produce both fiction and non-fiction writing. The cycle of immerse, analyse, plan and write is embedded across every classroom.
To develop the learners of tomorrow and equip them with the skills to flourish and succeed for "nothing is impossible with God"
