English teaching at Somerset Bridge
English is a core subject in the National Curriculum which focuses on teaching the skills of reading, writing, spelling, grammar, handwriting and speaking and listening. At Somerset Bridge, we teach these skills through Talk for Writing, exposing the children to a wide range of fiction and non fiction texts.
In 2017-18, we continue to use the Talk for Writing process across school. The children have the opportunity to retell a range of fiction and non fiction texts, leaerning the texts and having the skills to make changes to write their own.
Grammar continues to be a big part of English teaching. This is taught through the Talk for Writing texts.
World Book Day 2016
A huge well done and thank you to everyone for making such a great effort in their book character costumes. The children and staff all looked great and made judging the costumes very difficult!
Our book fair has also been a great success, all books bought will help earn points for buying books for our school.
