Pupils should develop a capacity to explain their understanding of books and other reading, and to prepare their ideas before they write.
Until a few years ago the term was hardly ever used. Pupils should be helped to consider the opinions of others. As part of this we decided to use a DT session one afternoon to taste a variety of different breads. Putting together a series of structured questions that pupils are required to answer in a set time, is a process in and of itself.
Aims The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written language, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment. Pupils should be taught how to read suffixes by building on the root words that they have already learnt.
In these ways, they extend their understanding of what they read and have opportunities to try out the language they have listened to. Pupils are supported to learn poems by heart, recite and perform poems. Investigate and learn about the Golden Age of Pirates and pirates in literature and culture with these cross-curricular resources.
