At LJS, we strive to provide the very best learning opportunities for our pupils. Our English Curriculum embraces a whole school approach to the teaching of English that places children’s literature at its core.
Over the four years a pupil spends at LJS, they will explore at least 48 literary texts and experience at least 40 unique significant authors as they move through the school.
Using a book as a stimulus, the pupils will learn the fundamental skills of writing composition, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary, as well as coverage of spelling, phonics and reading comprehension which will be applied within a wide variety of written outcomes in line with the expectations of the National Curriculum.
