English Curriculum in Primary Parent Session

Thank you to all those who attended the interactive workshop.

  • English Curriculum 1
  • English Curriculum 2
  • English Curriculum 3
  • English Curriculum 4
  • English Curriculum 6

This workshop session assisted parents to understand how we work to learn English at TBS and how parents can help their child’s language acquisition. Particular attention was paid to reading.

We outlined the basic structure of the curriculum we follow in the Primary Section i.e. the National Curriculum of England. This document sets out the skills and expectations we have of our students. The way that our teachers make these aims meaningful, enjoyable and engaging to our students is the result of how we plan together.

The parents were asked to consider what is involved in the complex process of acquiring a language. The participants were also asked to critique this linked article, which makes five suggestions of how to engage reluctant readers.

This prompted some rich discussion informed by the diverse linguistic experiences of the participants.

Why not have a try yourself; which of the 5 ideas is the best? Which ones might work with your child?

One of the recurring ideas to come out of discussion was the importance of matching children to high quality reading books that they will enjoy.

Many of the attendees commented that they found the workshop useful and went away feeling better informed about encouraging their children to read.
