English

Welcome to English at Shoreditch Park Primary School. Here you can find everything related to English, from policy to governor link visits and everything in between.

Take some time to enjoy the samples of work under the ‘Power of Reading Heading’ which demonstrates the variety of the lessons taught.

Furthermore, you can review our ‘Moderated Work’ section that demonstrates a range of writing across the school: working towards age expected standards; working at age expected standards; and working above age related expectations.

"We love English at school because our teachers plan lessons for us that are fun and engaging – I really like looking back through my books to see the progress I have made!"

Power of Reading

“Reading for pleasure, achievement for life”

Throughout Key Stage 1 and 2 we teach literacy through the Power of Reading programme.

The Power of Reading approach has raised achievement in over 2500 schools across England and internationally. Here at Shoreditch Park we have seen The Power of Reading transform the way the teachers teach and the way children feel about reading and writing. Children engage with high quality picture books, novels, poetry and non-fiction through a wide range of teaching approaches. Children are immersed into the text through music, art, drama, discussion and role-play. Other approaches include responding to illustrations, ‘Book Talk’, storymapping and book making. Children take ownership of the text and engage with it deeply.

The carefully chosen texts are all part of Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’s (CLPE) Core Book List. This resource can be signed up to on the Core Books website.
