English

At RAB we believe that a quality English curriculum should develop children’s love of reading, writing and discussion so that they can communicate their thoughts and feelings to others confidently and understand others ideas and emotions. 

Speaking, listening and reading are the buildings blocks which enable high quality writing.  

We aim to ensure that children read with good understanding and fluency and they see themselves as readers both for pleasure and seeking knowledge whilst acquiring an extensive vocabulary and the components of language including; spelling, punctuation and grammar. 

We understand the importance of children developing all these skills of language so they contribute and succeed in the next stage of their life.
