At Lady Bankes we develop children’s English skills whenever we can. There are opportunities in most curriculum subjects for children to practise their reading and writing. We call this our cross-curricular approach to English.
Below you can see examples of this kind of work.
In Science children studied the functions of the blood cells in the body. They acquired the relevant scientific information, and then practised their English skills by drafting an interview with a blood cell.
In History children studied the reasons for the Vikings’ invasion of Britain. They considered all the facts, interviewed one another in role, and then wrote the diary of a Viking invader.
Inspiring English across the curriculum!
