The English Curriculum at Thomas Harding Junior School
Our curriculum has, at its heart, a focus on developing children’s reading, writing, language and communication skills in all subjects. Our English curriculum is built around the idea of ‘purpose’, and carefully sequenced learning journeys create a cohesive link between reading, writing and spoken language, which enables children to make systematic progress and embed essential concepts and skills
Through English, we enthuse and excite children with a wide range of high quality texts, both fiction and non-fiction, immersing all pupils in a language-rich learning environment, where they develop confidence in themselves as readers, writers and orators. Writing always builds upon the foundations of reading and spoken language and is taught through English, as well as through writing opportunities in other curriculum areas where children can apply their skills.
