English at Horsley
At Horsley school writing is at the heart of our vision. The English curriculum is taught using a range of strategies which develops children’s writing skills through imitation, innovation and independence. Hot write, theme days and cross-curriculum opportunities within the school day enrich and develop the children’s development in English.
Our HOT WRITES are at the heart of our writing curriculum. We feel it is important children have a purpose and are immersed in the experience of writing.
Spellingframe includes all the words - both statutory and the example words - from the National Curriculum for Spelling for Year 1 to Year 6. Choose a spelling rule and each word is read aloud and provided within a sentence for context.
Our weekly spelling competition, "In It to Win It', inspires children to learn their spellings and to use them accurately in their writing. Children are entered into the prize draw on successfully reaching full marks in their spelling test.
