English at Five Lanes!


Intent Statement


At Five Lanes Primary School, we are dedicated to encouraging all children to be passionate about reading and writing. We are determined that ALL children will become highly competent readers and writers by the end of their time with us. It is our intention to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love for reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore their imagination.


During their time at Five Lanes, all children will be exposed to a high-quality education in English. This will not only teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and, through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them.


The English curriculum is built on the principle that skills are the product of fluency of knowledge in specific areas.  Relevant knowledge is a necessary precursor to the development of skills.
