Curriculum

Phonics and Reading Schemes

From EYFS and Key Stage 1, the school follows the Read Write Inc. phonics programme. This is a highly-structured and effective programme, initially taught in whole-class groups, developing into small group teaching sessions.

 

Our reading scheme is made up from books from a range of publishers, which help our children to develop a love of reading while selecting within a choice at their appropriate level.

 

As the children develop in fluency, towards the end of Key Stage 1, they will be ready to join the Accelerated Reader programme.

Project Weeks take place at the end of the Autumn, Winter and Spring quadmesters. These provide deep learning opportunities as well as enabling outside agencies to work with us to enhance our curriculum.
