In line with our whole school curriculum aims, our English curriculum intends to:
- Develop oral literacy and enhance vocabulary to ensure that our children can express themselves clearly to a variety of audiences;
- Offer a breadth of challenging and thought provoking texts, discussions and learning opportunities. Children will actively solve problems independently as well as part of a team;
- Encourage a lifelong love of books and reading. Books open doors to the world! They enable our children to see life beyond Castleside and encourage them to become thoughtful and respectful global citizens.
Documents relating to our English curriculum can be found below. We have taken the aims and objectives from the National Curriculum and used them to create the Castleside English Curriculum.
