Here at Midfield we are committed to providing an exciting, engaging and progressive English curriculum for our children. We want our children to become enthusiastic, engaged readers and writers who develop a life-long love of books and a passion for writing.
Speaking and listening skills built into all aspects of the English curriculum with the aim being that every child is able to communicate their thoughts, ideas and opinions clearly and succinctly, as well as listening to and reflecting on the ideas of others.
Midfield Primary School have fostered the CLPE’s Power of Reading approach to teach all areas of the English curriculum. The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’s (CLPE’s) Power of Reading has been compiled with highly regarded classroom-based research and experience of working with teachers. Power of Reading introduces children to a range of high quality books through a curriculum which is creative and engaging. As as a result, the programme develops a child's love of reading and writing.
