English at Furzedown


To celebrate our love of reading, children and teachers shared their favourite places to enjoy a good book.  Check out the video above for some inspiration! 


At Furzedown we are committed to providing an exciting and progressive English curriculum for our children. We are passionate about creating a language rich environment in which children’s literacy can thrive and our aim is that they become enthusiastic, engaged readers and writers who develop a life-long love of books and a passion for writing.  

We believe in using creative, cross-curricular approaches to teaching literacy, putting quality children’s literature at the heart of all learning. At the core of our curriculum are carefully chosen, high quality texts that reflect the diversity of our community.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go! - Dr Seuss
