In our school, we strive to ensure that we promote high standards of language and literacy for our pupils, with a rich curriculum that develops their spoken and written English skills. A key aim for us is to ensure that our children develop a love of literature. We have a commitment to reading high quality texts and we provide a wide range of opportunities for children to read for pleasure, with books that allow them to explore rich and varied texts, covering a range of time periods, cultures and themes.
To develop effective word reading skills through decoding, our school follows All Aboard Phonics from Early Years to Year Two, a systematic synthetic phonics scheme, with engaging lessons and vibrant resources, encouraging and supporting the development of reading skills in our children. All Aboard lessons and resources are also used to reinforce the importance of decoding in Key Stage Two. For further details of this, please click on the All Aboard Phonics button at the bottom of the page.
We follow the Read to Write scheme from Literacy Counts. It is designed to engage and challenge all of our learners, through high quality texts which reinforce our aim to develop a love for reading in all of our children.
Each unit is designed to support all areas of the National Curriculum for English, developing essential reading and writing skills across all genres, with excellent coverage of fiction and non-fiction based texts. Units are also designed to incorporate spelling and grammar focuses within their relevant year groups.
