Long Term Planning
At St. Pius X Catholic Primary School, we believe that literacy and communication are key life skills. Through the English curriculum, we will help children develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners. We want children to enjoy and appreciate literature and its rich variety.
Literacy is at the heart of all children’s learning. Literacy enables children both to communicate with others effectively for a variety of purposes and to examine their own and others’ experiences, feelings and ideas, giving these order and meaning. Because literacy is central to children’s intellectual, emotional and social development, it has an essential role across the curriculum and helps pupils’ learning to be coherent and progressive.
We aim for all children to develop a love of and enthusiasm for the English language. Our vision is that all children become confident, fluent readers and writers, with an understanding of a variety of texts and genres. We aim for all children to develop an interest in books and to read for enjoyment.
