At Pleasant Street 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.  We have included information on reading and phonics in a separate section.



English Long Term Plan 

We use the Read to Write teaching resources by Literacy Counts as the basis of our English planning from Reception to Year Six.  It incorporates reading, writing, vocabulary and GPS skills through the teaching of high quality text each half term.
