Welcome to the English Zone

At Holy Cross, we aim to develop pupils' abilities within an integrated program of phonics, reading and writing. Pupils will be given opportunities to interrelate the requirements of English with a broad and balanced approach to teaching of English across the curriculum, with opportunities to consolidate and reinforce taught literacy skills in a variety of subjects.

At Holy Cross we aim to foster a love of reading and writing through a vast array of opportunities, designed to engage, excite and develop our children. 

Writing at Holy Cross 
At Holy Cross, writing is an integral part of everything that we do. Writing is used to support and enhance all learning, and we recognise that English skills underpin all elements of the wider school curriculum.
