At Fulfen it is our belief that every child regardless of background can leave our school with the ability to read fluently. We aim to achieve this by developing a love of reading as soon as children start school. We believe that children do not just become readers: fluency and enjoyment are the result of careful teaching and frequent practice. As a result, we ensure that reading is at the heart of everything that we do.
English lessons at Fulfen Primary School are centred around a high-quality text that children can immerse themselves within. These texts are purposefully chosen to engage our children and are synonymous with the genre of focus. Each year group have access to writing different genres to ensure that, throughout their time at Primary School, children have experience writing for particular purposes. Also, English lessons are an opportunity for children to enhance skills of handwriting, spelling and grammar, which are directly linked to the area of focus.
