English Staff on Roald Dahl Day 2014

We are a committed team of professionals whose aim in lessons is to combine a love of reading with a confidence in language so that your child is more able to lead a happy and successful life.

Our curriculum is designed with reading at its core and we urge all parents to make room for reading, even in the busiest of home lives. Our Y7 and Y8s enjoy one lesson private reading a week in our Information Centre where they can complete the bronze, silver and gold reading challenges.

As well as assessment and progress it is also very important for us that students are enthused and inspired and we have designed a curriculum with engaging, challenging texts and activities. We also have activites, trips and competitions organised throughout the year including Roald Dahl day, the Chris Evans 500 word story competition, visiting author workshops, trips to the Crucible or to Cineworld to watch Theatre Live productions and much more!

The leader of teaching and learning for English is Mrs Little and Mrs Thompson - llittle@eckington.derbyshire.sch.uk
