English Intent

At Bramley St. Peter’s we aim to nurture our children to develop into articulate and confident communicators, who are well-equipped with the basic skills they need to become life-long learners. We aim to foster a love of language and literature, through a text-based approach; inspiring curiosity and excitement, and also as a door to further learning.


Spoken language, reading and writing links are made across the curriculum to ensure that children’s learning is relevant and meaningful, allowing them to make the necessary connections within the curriculum.





In reading we aim to ensure that all our children:

  • are exposed to a diverse range of authors and texts
  • discover a love of reading for pleasure and for a purpose
  • talk confidently and listen actively
  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
  • have the ability to decode, read fluently with intonation, and have a good comprehension 
  • acquire a wide vocabulary, and an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading as well as writing and the spoken language 








In writing we aim to ensure that all children:

  • foster an enjoyment of writing
  • see themselves as real writers and provide opportunities for children to publish their own writing
  • write for a range of purposes and audiences
  • are proud of their writing both the content and presentation
  • write fluently and legibly
  • are confident and accurate spellers
  • take ownership of their writing and acquire the ability to organise and plan their written work, and evaluate and revise it
  • develop an understanding of how widely writing is used in everyday life and, therefore, how important and useful the skills are that they are learning
