The English Department has multi-sensory teaching at the core. We make a difference as we teach to the needs of the individual. Our school uses the Phono-Graphix program, where we teach that letters are pictures of sounds. This is embedded into our curriculum and therefore consolidates learning.
Over the years we have had the pleasure of meeting various authors such as Henry Winkler, Tom Palmer, Adrian Collman and writer/comedian, Dave Smith. These visits have been truly inspirational for our children. Our pupils have had poetry published in the book entitled ‘Once Upon a Dream, Surrey Verses’.
We thoroughly enjoy celebrating World Book Day every year and use this as a good way to promote reading.
