English at St Wulstan's
Here at St Wulstan's, we use a story topic approach to our English learning.
Each Humanities topic is planned around one or more quality texts. This provides rich opportunities for writing and the chance to study many high quality texts as a class.
Hooks, such as real-life experiences, are used to create purposes for writing and engage children in writing tasks.
Whole class guided reading is taught, with a real focus on using high quality texts to promote discussion around texts and reading.
