Students learn about complex language features, varied sentence structures and expand their vocabulary. Over the year they also learn a significant number of new high-frequency sight words and words that need to be decoded phonically, and a range of punctuation conventions, as well as an understanding of how literary devices, illustrations and diagrams make meaning in printed text. They create a range of written texts of their own for various purposes and audiences.

Based on the Curriculum, Cluey’s approach to primary English focuses on core literacy skills, including reading fluency and comprehension, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, while also providing opportunities to learn about some conventions of language and literature. Our personalised approach gives your child the chance to slow down in the areas they find challenging to ensure they ‘get it’.
