Our approach to reading
(and succeeding!)

Our children work through The Oxford Reading Tree( our main scheme) scheme encompassing a range of genres such as fiction, non fiction and plays that are book banded according to different levels. 

Children are encouraged to read daily at home and will bring home a Reading Record/Journal for you to sign every day. Please ask if you need  any advice about reading at home with your child, We follow the Read, Write Inc(RWI) phonics for children in EYFs and KS1. Sometimes children in KS2 also do this. Daily phonics lessons take place in EYFS and KS1.

RWI is a structured reading and writing scheme that teaches children the phonic( sounds) knowledge that they will need to read familiar and unfamiliar words. Children are taught how to 'Fred talk' ( sound out words) in order to read them. Children also learn to read whole words so that speed and fluency is improved.

In KS2  we use Read Write Inc. Literacy and Language and Igniting Writing.  Our aim is to equip  the children with the skills to read and understand any text confidently, write fluently, think critically and articulate thoughts and ideas clearly.

Maths/ Numeracy

Maths is taught using Abacus from Year 2 to Year 6 and Year 1 use Numicon in order to give the children a better grounding and understanding in numeracy.
