English

Learning English is given our highest priority at Harris Primary Academy Kenley. The New National Curriculum (September 2014) provides the framework around which the teaching of reading, writing, speaking and listening is planned.

We provide opportunities for children to view reading as an enjoyable and meaningful activity as well as enabling them to develop their comprehension, inference and thinking skills.

English at our Academy

The children at Harris Primary Academy Kenley are creative and motivated writers and are provided with a wide range of opportunities for writing. They are shown how to structure and present their written work effectively and are taught grammar and spelling as a vital means of enhancing their writing ability.

Teachers assess children's writing regularly and children work on achieving specific targets that the teacher has set for them. Speaking and listening are part of an integrated programme of language activities which encourage children to communicate confidently in many different situations and to a range of audiences.

Phonics at our Academy

We believe at Harris Primary Academy Kenley that phonics should be taught in an engaging and systematic way, using a multisensory approach. The Read Write Inc programme enables us to do this. In order to accelerate pupil’s progress, we deliver workshops that specifically target parents and carers. This enables them to support their children at home by listening to their children read their home reading book daily, practising reading and spelling of high frequency words.

The Read Write Inc Programme

The Read Write Inc. programmes combine into a complete literacy programme rooted in the new national curriculum for children aged five to eleven. They are designed to stimulate and challenge children’s thinking and create enthusiastic, life-long readers and writers.

Catching up for the lowest 20% of our pupils

At Harris Primary Academy Kenley, if a child is not meeting the expected standard, we ensure they receive reading support and that they are heard read aloud, ensuring that they get the enhancement and practice of the strategies required to become fluent and independent readers.

Reading in Class

All teachers at Harris Primary Academy Kenley read to their classes aloud for 15 minutes each day. This models a love of reading and helps all children develop a connection with a shared class text.

Reading Home Learning

All children at Harris Primary Academy Kenley are expected to read  every evening for 10-30 minutes at home .
