At KRIII we aim to provide an English curriculum that immerses pupils in learning that is memorable, engaging and meaningful. Our English curriculum enables pupils to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills and vocabulary they need to be successful readers and writers. Our English curriculum will enable the children to develop, apply and embed their skills through linked topic learning, building on what they already know and can do.
