You will see the success of our curriculum in the following ways:-
The teaching of reading is based on phonics and proven approaches from our reading recovery programme. Children are taught phonics on a daily basis using the ‘Little Wandle’ programme with phonetic decodable books alongside a reading for pleasure book. In Key Stage 2 ‘keep up’ sessions are used to support children new to English and for any children who didn’t meet the required standard in Key stage one.
Children have individual reading books which they are encouraged to read both at home and school. We use RED TED and reading racetracks to reward children who read regularly at home. Reading skills are taught within phonics, Book of the Week or English lessons. Class books are selected to engage and to develop skills and knowledge, where appropriate they are linked with Curriculum topics.
