English: Across the curriculum

Opportunities are planned and taken to promote reading, writing, vocabulary and speaking and listening skills across the curriculum and throughout the school day. We make use of a range of drama workshops (linked to other curriculum areas) as well as assemblies and class presentations (e.g. My Amazing Family, My Precious Place) to develop presentation and public speaking skills. Two annual performances by the Young Shakespeare Company, as well as an annual Pantomime and other performances in school, visits to theatres such as Regents Park Open Air Theatre and the Little Angel Theatre, as well as opportunities to perform in our annual Nativity, Year 6 production or Arts Project performances, add to the enrichment opportunities linked to English.
