Mrs Munir is our English lead and Mr SImeson is our phonics lead. Please see phonics tab on the website under English for further information.

English is fundamental to all areas of learning across the curriculum and has therefore been acknowledged to be of primary importance within Moldgreen Community Primary School.  We aim to develop the full potential of each child throughout the whole range of English skills providing structure for achievement towards end of year expectations.  We believe that effective learning draws on the experiences of the child, their knowledge, understanding and skills and is further enhanced through positive praise and encouragement to promote confidence and high self-esteem. 


Teaching of Reading and Reading for Pleasure


We do promote wider reading through teaching our wider curriculum by using high quality texts such as Traction Man, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, The Wind in the Willows and Wonder. The children are able to make links between subjects and they are happy to talk about the books.

Our classrooms have book corners with a range of books for children to choose from. We have a school library to choose books to borrow. We have Y6 librarians in the library at lunchtime to keep it organised.

To further the interest in books, children can purchase books though our Scholastic Book Club magazines and from our book fair events in school. We have also had author visits and virtual author links to develop the love of reading and promote story and poetry writing.

Please view our Reading in Moldgreen document and visit the Reading section of our English Curriculum pages.


Please see documents list as the bottom of this page for further help and support.


If you would like your children to explore some suitable websites, then we can suggest the following:


All Year 1 children have access to Reading Eggs and all have a log in. If you have a child in Year 1 and they are not using Reading Eggs, please see your child's class teacher.

Some Year 2 and KS2 children are also using Reading Eggs where required.

Well done to all children who took part in the March Reading Eggs challenge. Congratulations to Aleena, Sumayah, Joseph and Katie who all recieved a new book for being the top children to complete reading lessons. They completed 54 lessons between them over a 2 week period. Top work!

We have found in the past that some children have not done as well in SPAG tests due to their spelling ability. Also some children are not using the spellings they know on a day to day basis. Therefore we have subscribed to this website and all children from Y2 (once they have completed Phase 5 of Little Wandle Letters and Sounds) to Y6 should have a log in. If you think your child is not using this resource, please see the class teacher. www.spellingshed.com https://play.edshed.com/login

Children have opportunities to access this site at school but also need to log on at home. Children are already loving the game to improve their scores and therefore their spelling ability. 

It is important that children log on at home as teachers and school staff set assignments linked to spellings to learn. Children can therefore learn spellings whilst playing the games on line. The top children in each class recieve a prize in Friday achievement assembly.


Children are awarded for their Reading Eggs and Spelling Shed attainment and progress in our achievement assembly each Friday.



Masked Reader Video 2022

The staff read 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and last year read 'The Gruffalo'. Can you guess who is behind the mask?

In 2023 the staff read 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt. Can you guess who is behind the mask?

Thank you to all the children who took part in the 'Book Swap' this year. Many children were able to hand in a loved book and take home another book of their choice.
