Learning English is our highest priority at Harris Primary Academy Kenley. The 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.
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.
