English at Meadowside
English at Meadowside is underpinned and driven by quality texts which link our reading and writing with the rest of the curriculum, through our Big Idea topics. Our carefully selected quality texts allow our children to develop a passion and love for reading as well as immersing them in rich vocabulary which they collect and apply in their own writing as well as providing a broad and balanced reading diet.
Our 3Cs of writing (Collect, Connect and Create), guide children through meaningful learning journeys, which allow them to collect ideas and new vocabulary, learn new grammatical skills and then end with a published creation that they can discuss and share pride.
Lessons showcase our high expectations and are delivered in engaging and exciting ways that help to nurture curiosity and motivate the pupils.
