What English looks like at All Hallows:

What our pupils say about English:


"It is a subject where your own ideas are really important. When we write a story or a poem, it is not like anybody else's; it's more individual." (Year 6 child)


"You can let your imagination run wild." (Year 5 child)


"I love making up my own stories and poems." (Year 4 child)


"It's fun and it's creative - you create your own things." (Year 3 child)


"I like learning about books in English. They are usually books I wouldn't read otherwise." (Year 2 child)


"I really like reading and writing and doing phonics everyday." (Year 1 child)
