English is taught daily at St Michael’s with a focus on speaking and listening to develop Oracy and vocabulary. We use the Talk for Writing approach following our whole school writing overview. This enables children to imitate and internalise the language they need for a particular genre orally before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version. It builds on 4 key phases: Imitation, Innovation, Invention and Independent Application.
