English at Holy Family Catholic Primary School


Good literacy skills—the ability to read, write, and communicate confidently—are foundational to learning. They unlock access to all areas of the curriculum, enabling students to discover and pursue their individual talents and interests. We believe that great readers become great writers, the two skills are inextricably linked. We provide our children with rich and varied learning opportunities that help them to become confident and enthusiastic learners. Moreover, we want our children to have a positive attitude towards communication and to be able to independently express their emotions and their ideas. Through our English Curriculum, we strive to teach the children how important their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills are in the real world. By giving this context to their learning, the children understand the value of English to them now, and in their futures.
