English lessons at Park Road Academy Primary School link closely to the Learning Challenge Curriculum. Quality text links English with the driver; we ensure the focus is on the quality of the text. Genres of writing are developed through each year group’s set of drivers. Year group progression maps provide clear and precise learning intentions and demonstrate a range of writing opportunities, ensuring that writing is produced for a breadth of purposes. Each teacher carefully considers the quality of work produced by learners in the core subject areas. This will give greater relevance and purpose to children' s work as they draw upon learning in other subjects, making connections and using specialised vocabulary in their work. Our schemes of work place an emphasis on using metacognitive style approaches as well as focusing on pupils progressively improving their knowledge of a variety of subjects.
