English

At the Mosley Academy, we teach the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. Our curriculum is delivered through a high-quality text based approach which prioritises the essential skills of reading and stimulates creative writing opportunities.

We believe that developing strong reading skills provides the children with the ability to access the wider curriculum and is key to future academic success and opportunities. English opportunities are interwoven into the school day right from the very moment the children start with us.

Below you will find a link to our English Procedure which comprehensively details our approach to the teaching of English.

You will also find a wealth of further information which explains the progression of English skills that the children experience.

We use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds (revised) as our Phonics programme.
