English

Throughout their time at Broad Square Primary School we will help the children to acquire and develop the skills and knowledge to allow them to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing, and to read for meaning and enjoyment.  While the work in English will be based on the 2014 National Curriculum, the children will develop and practise their skills and knowledge in all areas of the curriculum and in role-play and drama.  We have developed our central library facilities where children are able to borrow books to read at home or help with research for topic work. All our children have the opportunity to bring home suitable books to read at home.

We teach foundation subjects through a topic approach. Topics are chosen in order to meet requirements of the National Curriculum programmes of study. Wherever possible we reinforce the knowledge and skills taught in the core subjects of English and Mathematics by allowing children to apply them in a variety of contexts.
