ENGLISH GENRES

At Rich­mond we focus on teach­ing the dif­fer­ent types of writ­ing within imag­i­na­tive, real pur­poses often involv­ing real audi­ences. This helps pupils to appre­ci­ate the impor­tance of Eng­lish to their lives out­side school. The doc­u­ments below show how our Eng­lish units link to our Cor­ner­stones Imag­i­na­tive Learn­ing Projects, enabling pupils to use and apply all of their skills and knowl­edge across a wide range of cur­ri­u­cu­lum areas.
