At Airedale Junior School we learn:

At Airedale Junior School, English is embedded into the whole curriculum. Through developing language and the written word, we equip children with the skills they need to confidently carry them along their learning journey.

We support the children to:

  • Develop their reading and listening comprehension skills.
  • Develop their understanding of and ability to write a wide range of text types including fiction, poetry and non-fiction texts.
  • Develop a secure understanding of grammar and punctuation.
  • Develop their ability to understand spelling rules and apply their spelling across the curriculum.
  • Develop their handwriting skills with the aim that the majority of children will have a fluent and cursive writing style by Year 3.
  • Develop their spoken language skills in order to speak confidently and appropriately in a range of contexts and to a range of audiences.
