An ability to communicate effectively is essential if children are to achieve their potential throughout their school and adult life. Therefore, we view the acquisition of language skills to be of the utmost importance and so the teaching of all aspects of English is given a high priority. The literacy curriculum is taught through all subjects, although one hour each day is set aside for specific language skills and concepts to be taught.
Our phonics scheme of work is Phonics Play and the TES phonics programme.
Our reading scheme of work is the Oxford Reading Tree.
We are currently reviewing our provision in respect of decodable phonics reading books and have looked at a variety of options. More about this in September 2020!
