Mrs C. Jones coordinates English at Gobowen Primary School. 

We recently trained all our teaching staff to use the Read, Write Inc system to raise standards of reading and phonics in Key Stage One. 

Wilfred Owen Competition

Author Luke Temple visited our school and came back to sign books the next day. ​We all very much enjoyed his visit.

I have produced examples of the grammar and punctuation that children are expected to know at the end of Key Stage Two, using the texts we have been studying in Year 6 - Clockwork by Phillip Pullman and Skellig by David Almond.

We are developing a new spelling scheme at the moment. 

Link to the Early Years Reading - contains information about reading, phonics and homework scheme.

We subscribe to the Fiction Express website to encourage positive attitudes to reading. Interactive ebooks are published each week and the children vote on how they wish for the story to continue! Comprehension activities are also included. See the introductory video at -
