At Tudor Grange Primary Academy Perdiswell English is at the heart of our curriculum, pushing children to become articulate communicators and deep thinkers about our world and what it means to be human. Exposure to and immersion in quality texts helps to develop a shared culture and a life-long love of reading and writing. The focus texts provide all children with an entitled exposure to a range of significant stories, authors, styles and genres. Greater depth and deeper thinking skills are embedded across reading and writing for ALL our children to improve outcomes and drive standards. Distinct types of writing are practised each half term with an emphasis on lexical and grammatical structure.

Reception and Infants are taught to read using Read Write Inc. Phonics teaching and the supporting texts. All classrooms have welcoming book corners with a wide election of carefully selected age appropriate texts.
