Phonics and Spelling
EYFS and KS1
A combination of Read Write Inc. and Success For All planning and resources are used to teach phonics across EYFS and KS1. Children are placed in ability groups which are based on assessments carried out by the Phonics Leader. Teachers adapt planning for the groups they are teaching and lessons are tailored to meet the children’s individual needs.
The No Nonsense Spelling Programme is used across KS2. Some children use the Sounds Write scheme to provide extra support in their spelling. Additional information can be found on the website.
Our P.E. curriculum includes swimming for children in Year 3. We ask parents to send a contribution of £3.20 each week towards transportation costs.
Some of our topics include educational visits. These visits are an important part of topic work and should not be missed. Again, we usually ask for a contribution towards the costs of these visits.
