Longcause Community Special School Learning for Life

Lower School

In Lower School we follow a coverage map for English which is a mixture of fiction and non-fiction texts. We ensure that we give our pupils the opportunity to experience a wide range of genres. This is in addition to frequent physical writing practise, phonics and reading. Below is our current rolling programme for English in Lower School.
