Chandler's Ford Infant School

English - Subject Leader Mrs Ruos

Teaching of English at Chandlers Ford Infant School takes place across the curriculum and includes speaking and listening, reading, including phonics and writing including spelling, punctuation, grammar and handwriting. Some of these aspects of English including phonics and handwriting we teach discretely. However most of our English curriculum is taught through topics, some of which are history, geography or science based. At the heart of our topics are rich texts, both fiction and non-fiction which inspire the children and provide the children with models for their own writing. Writing has a purpose and an audience where possible and includes a variety of genres, e.g. information, narrative, poetry.
