English is an essential part of a child’s curriculum and it is essential to the overall development of the child. At Sherwood Junior School we aim:
- to develop pupils’ abilities through an integrated programme of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
- to ensure pupils are given opportunities to consolidate and reinforce the taught English skills.
- to ensure every child experiences an engaging and enriching English curriculum that provides them with the skills needed to communicate in the wider world.
- to ensure that everyone in the school community has a clear outline of expectations for the subject.

Theme Days and Events
World Book Day
World Book Day takes place every year in March. World Book Day is a charity that changes lives through a love of books and reading. Their mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is a vital indicator of a child’s future success. We celebrate and participate in World Book Day every year.
Book Donation from David Wilson Homes
We were very lucky to be chosen by David Wilson Homes to receive a donation of 15 books from our wish list. The books have all been added to our school library for all the children to enjoy. The books were donated in recognition of International Children’s Book Day. A huge thank you to David Wilson homes.
