English teaching at Saltergate involves a variety of approaches to suit the diverse needs of our children. The teaching involves whole class work, small group work, with emphasis placed on independent learning.
Daily guided reading sessions promote the love of reading and give the opportunity for children to explore all types of texts.
A wide range of writing activities develop accuracy within spelling, grammar and punctuation. These are taught by providing children with meaningful experiences which encourage the children to write with purpose. A cross curricular approach ensures that children apply these learnt skills across other subjects.
