At Huish, English sits at the heart of the curriculum. We place high emphasis on the teaching of speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary, writing, spelling, grammar and handwriting.
We teach English daily throughout the school and know that for children to become excellent writers they need to read. We aim to engage children with different genres of books and encourage them to read for pleasure. Every classroom has a book corner and a good selection of books for the children to choose from. As well as this, we ensure every teacher delivers daily storytime to their class, thereby providing children the opportunity to listen to quality texts offering rich and varied vocabulary that inspire and promote a love of reading and writing.
We aim for all Huish children to leave Year 6 with secure English skills that will allow them to thrive and continue their learning as they embark on the next chapter of their education.
