At Booker Avenue Junior School, we provide our children with an engaging and exciting English curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow. Our high-quality English program teaches 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 writing and reading curricula that are intrinsically linked to our wider curriculum, we want to develop pupils culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually.
Through a combination of Talk for Writing, our high-quality reading spine, Reading Plus and Cracking Comprehension, it is our intent to provide the children with all of the skills that are essential to participating fully as a member of society. In line with the National Curriculum, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
Children will leave Booker as independent, confident, successful communicators who will be able to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society.
