English at Whiston Willis Primary Academy

At Whiston Willis Primary Academy, we teach our literacy by following the Literary Curriculum. The Literary Curriculum is a complete, thematic approach to the teaching of English, placing children’s literature at its core.

Children explore over ninety literary texts and experience at least seventy five unique, significant authors as they move through our two-year cycle.

As a whole school approach, it provides complete coverage of all National Curriculum expectations for writing composition, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary, as well as coverage of spelling, phonics and reading comprehension. All sequences lead to purposeful application for a wide range of audiences across a variety of outcomes.
