Our Curriculum


TNHP - Classroom Activities - 2023 (41)

At Templenewsam Halton Primary School, the English curriculum aims to offer a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum for all children.

We aim to create a love of language, reading and writing to promote confident, successful lifelong readers, writers and communicators. Our intent is to combine the teaching of reading and writing within a context that is meaningful, purposeful and creative. We will ensure the children acquire the key skills needed, building on prior learning and developing progression across the year groups. We want children to be able to express themselves confidently and for different purposes and audiences and so to help them communicate clearly, we will help them develop a secure understanding of grammar and spelling. The ability to read and write confidently is the gateway to academic success, improved ambition and lifelong learning for our children.
