At Stocksbridge Nursery Infant School we use a mastery approach to teaching English.
During the first half term we teach narrative through a story such as On Sudden Hill or The Bog Baby. Children learn a story and can retell it orally and through writing. We teach children spelling, punctuation and grammar skills that are applied into their storytelling. During the second half of each term we have a non-fiction and poetry focus, these are linked to our half termly themes. This approach builds confidence and develops skills across all year groups.
