English at Old Hall
Old Hall School aims for our children to become skilled and confident SPEAKERS, READERS and WRITERS!
We work hard to welcome our children to LOVE all aspects of the English Curriculum.
We want their aspirations to know no bounds as they become the authors, journalists & entrepreneurs of the future; but also to understand that their skills in English will enable them success in whichever path they choose.
We think that English is essential for the educational and social progress of all of our pupils, as it allows them to make sense of the ever changing world around them.
At Old Hall, we value reading & writing as skills, therefore, some priority is given to the teaching of this subject.
We are dedicated to all of our pupils to become confident, lifelong readers and writers.
A selection of texts throughout school enables our pupils to develop a rich and varied understanding of language, with opportunities to transfer this understanding to other areas of the curriculum and to prepare them for their future journey, in education and beyond.
