At Herne CE Junior School, we believe that English is at the heart of all children’s learning. We work hard to build a stimulating and progressive curriculum that will challenge our learners to reach their potential. It is our vision that every child will learn to become confident and enthusiastic writers by being given exciting and inspiring materials and opportunities to support and challenge them. Herne Juniors aims to nurture creative thinking and to provide opportunities for reflection of their own and others’ writing. They will use writing to express themselves and will write independently for a range of purposes. Through the English curriculum, we will help children to develop the skills and knowledge to communicate effectively through the spoken and written language and equip them for interaction with others in the wider world.
