English lessons at HCFS incorporate spelling, punctuation, grammar and writing teaching and learning into intricately woven sequences of lessons centering on a genre and writing purpose. Over the course of the academic year, children have opportunities to engage with genres within fiction, non-fiction and poetry whilst learning the specifics of spelling, punctuation and grammar that link to the writing genre and will therefore provide them with the necessary skills to enrich their writing abilities.
Writing for a Purpose
Children are supported to understand that writing will not be immediately perfect, so are therefore encouraged to review their writing and edit effectively with improvements.
For more information about what your child is learning, please speak with their Class Teacher.
