Schemes of Work in English
The National Curriculum, which is statutory, provides the framework for the teaching of English at Flixton Primary School.
To access more information about the English National curriculum, please click here.
Our 'core learning' document uses the National Curriculum as a basis and outlines the key learning in English in each year group at Flixton Primary School. Much of our learning in English revolves around the use of good quality texts. You can find out more about our core learning and our texts in the files at the bottom of this page. There is also information about phonics in the files at the bottom of the page.
We are a 'Pobble' school, which means our pupils' writing is published to a Worldwide audience! You can read our writing on Pobble.com.
We encourage children to be heard read at home at least 4 times a week. If children achieve this, they are rewarded by moving their car around the reading racetrack in their classroom. There are prizes for laps of the racetrack completed and an inter-class trophy competition!
Children have individual logins to Spelling Shed to support their learning at school and at home.
Our Y5 and 6 pupils really enjoyed learning about being an author from Jessica Townsend who visited our school today. We also enjoyed welcoming the Y5 and 6 pupils from St Monica's who joined us for the event.
We have had a massive number of views and comments on Pobble!
World Book Day saw us all dressing up with loads of book related activities going on. Many classes 'linked up' to enable our infant pupils to work with our junior pupils.
