Hillside Community Primary School

Together we can shine

English 

At Hillside in our carefully mapped out English curriculum we 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. We believe that 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 across all areas of the curriculum.
