We plan high quality English Learning journeys including teaching Reading based on use of high quality texts, talk, higher order questioning, modelling and scaffolding and principles from ‘Let’s Think’ Learning journeys are planned thoughtfully and children are given the opportunity to write in a variety of styles and genres. Whole class reading deepens children’s understanding and develops their critical thinking.

Phonics is taught daily in Reception and key stage 1 through multi-sensory and interactive lessons. Children are always given the opportunity to practice their new knowledge through reading and writing activities. We use letters and sounds programme throughout early years and key stage 1.


Below are the principles behind the teaching of English at Linton Mead.
