Science in Year 1 - November 2022

English Learning

English at St Hugh of Lincoln is based upon the recognition of the role of outstanding English texts in garnering interest and engagement with learning across reading, writing and the spoken word. Using a range of classic texts as inspiration, we aim to develop confidence in reading and oracy, and writers who feel there is a value, a purpose and a beauty in what they write. A typical learning journey starts with a in-depth look at an outstanding text. Every week typically features an extended write supplemented by Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar learning.
