English has an important place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently have a huge barrier to success and other aspects of life.
English English is a core subject and at the heart of everything we teach here at Bankfields Primary school. As English subject leader, I am passionate about ensuring that our pupils have access to a range of high-quality books throughout their time with us in order to develop a love of reading- not just for childhood, but for life! Children here at Bankfields enjoy expressing themselves creatively through their writing and on stage in regular musical productions. Their love of ambitious vocabulary and knowledge of grammatical concepts is developed in language-rich classrooms, and then applied when writing independently for a range of purposes and audiences.
