English

Overview of the Department
At Ovingham Middle School, English is a subject that is at the heart of every lesson. As well as lessons in the subject itself, pupils learn and develop skills that they can transfer into all lessons across the curriculum.Therefore, in our department we realise the importance of equipping pupils with the skills they need to be successful. We encourage them to be creative, imaginative, and ambitious as well as promoting an enjoyment of reading, writing and communicating.

Pupils are taught 5 lessons a week in KS2 and 4 in KS3. The extra lesson in KS2 is focused on SPAG in preparation for the SATs test at the end of Year 6. In each lesson pupils will develop their reading, writing and communication skills whilst studying a range of texts and genres.
