At Cherry Tree Academy we follow the National Curriculum English Programmes of Study in Key Stage 1 (Year 1 - 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 3 - 6).


You can view the Programmes of Study here:


In Key Stage 2 English is taught through a class novel approach.


This strategy exposes our children to a wide range of literature and rapidly increases their vocabulary.


Spellings are taught, learned and practiced through regular 'Spelling Cinema' activities focussing on the words and spelling patters set out in the Programmes of Study.


Throughout school pupils are taught, in writing, how to plan, draft and edit their work drawing on the spellings, sentence structures and vocabulary which they have studied in order to improve their writing to e the best it can be.
