Learning to Read and Write

Learning the sounds and letters which form the building blocks of reading and spelling are taught, beginning in the Foundation Stage, through Read Write Inc.


Read Write Inc is a scheme is based around the systematic teaching of phonics so children learn to blend their letter sounds quickly and so learn to read.  

On joining the school in Reception the children quickly start learning their sounds and reading simple books – ‘Ditties’.  The children then move up through the levels moving groups as they progress. They bring home the book they have been working on each week and we encourage you to read lots of stories to them at home to help build their vocabulary.

Developing Literacy Skills through the English curriculum

As children progress through the school, the English curriculum becomes increasingly demanding.  By the end of KS2, pupils need to consistently demonstrate the skills outlined by the Department for Education in order to be awarded the expected level.  Please click here to see the skills required.

To help children secure the standards required, we have updated our curriculum.  We are using various resources to aid with planning and delivering challenging lessons which will support our pupils in meeting the demands of the National Curriculum.
