English at Newlands Community Primary School


Welcome to the 'English' section of our website. Here you will find lots of useful things that support the children's learning in school.

Talk for Writing at Newlands


Talk for Writing’ is embedded in stories. Children are not only exposed to a shared text, they also look at examples from established authors to help them develop language, vocabulary and the skills of being a writer. At Newlands we are using ‘Talk for Writing’ to help develop our reading and writing for all children from EY to Yr 6. We have found that ‘Talk for Writing’ supports children by giving them permission to play around with language and sentence structure through talking and discussion and by the use of high quality examples of writing.

Reading at Newlands


At Newlands we believe that the teaching of reading is the basis of all learning. By providing high quality reading teaching in line with our school values we allow children to foster a love of books but who also see the importance of reading in their daily life beyond school.
