Itchen Abbas Primary School


All of our English is taught through rich high quality texts, which where possible link in with the children's topics.  Our philosophy behind our approach is to use the same rich text with the children and through this bring in a range of writing genres, for example the children may write a character description one week, then next they would be exploring a newspaper article based on the stories events, followed up by a monologue in the third week considering characters thoughts, feelings and emotions.


Book Week 2017

This year we decided to do something different! We wanted the children to experience and explore stories and tales from around the world. Each class read and enjoyed a variety of carefully chosen quality books. These were used to inspire writing from the children as well as enjoying the stories and information. We decided that this would be an excellent opportunity to further develop our children’s experiences of a variety of cultural heritages and below you can see our hall dispays, covered in our learning.
