The teaching of English at Phoenix Infant School is enjoyable, motivating and challenging. We teach basic skills and ensure we provide a rich, meaningful and engaging environment. Reading and Writing is encouraged throughout the whole of the curriculum as we strive to inspire a lifelong love of books and Literature. Below are the current policies for English and explain further how Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening and Phonics are taught throughout The School.
In Class 4 our author that we have been learning about is Colin McNaughton. We read lots of his books, shared our favourite parts of each book and wrote a book review.
In our English lessons in Class 4 we have read the story Paper Planes. We made our own paper planes and flew them outside thinking of lots of words to describe how they flew in the air. We planned and wrote our own friendship story similar to the one we read.
