Curriculum 2015 – 2016

All classes (Year groups 1 to 6) are now accessing the 2014 National Curriculum (click link to see details).

Our Phonics teaching concurs with the 2014 National Curriculum that states,

“Skilled word reading involves both the speedy working out of the pronunciation of unfamiliar printed words (decoding) and the speedy recognition of familiar printed words. Underpinning both is the understanding that the letters on the page represent the sounds in spoken words. This is why phonics should be emphasised in the early teaching of reading to beginners (i.e. unskilled readers) when they start school.”

We currently follow the Letters and Sounds Phonics (click to see) Scheme which gives access to the principles and practice of high quality phonics.  Pupils in EY2 and KS1 are set for discrete phonics lessons 4 sessions a week.

We also use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.  Click here for links to ideas to support your child’s education through this scheme.
