Purpose of Study (taken from The Primary National Curriculum in England 2014 Key Stages 1&2 Framework)

English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know.


Please see the documents below to gain a full understanding of our English curriculum here at Selborne, including the intent, implementation and impact which can be found in the subject policy.

Sharing our writing

We are very proud because so many children are receiving Governors Writing Awards for producing some improved writing in their Governors Writing Books. Keep it up!

We would like to congratulate Milo Grant-Turton (Year 5) for not only winning the Alton Rotary Young Writers competition but for coming runner up in the District Junior Final too!

World Book Day 2018

We have all been taking part in ERIC (Everybody Reading In Class) this week. We have been in our House group classes and are all enjoying this time to read.
Otters have been working on their descriptive writing and the use of similes and metaphors to help build a picture for the reader.  Here they have written a description of a person using these.
Rabbits class have all written a diary. They had to use their learning from history as they wrote it from the perspective of a worker during The Great Fire of London in 1666.
