Teaching of Phonics and Early Reading
Teaching of Phonics
From Nursery through to Key Stage 1 we teach children to read using the Read Write Inc. phonics scheme.
This is a systematic taught programme of reading and writing skills using quality texts and a fun approach to learning.
As children progress through Key Stage 1 and into Key Stage 2 we use a variety of quality texts in guided reading. This approach provides opportunities to develop a range of reading strategies, good comprehension skills and a love of reading.
Talk For Writing
We use Talk for Writing techniques and strategies in our English curriculum, this provides children with the tools to develop as writers. It enables them to imitate the language they need for a particular piece of writing orally, before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version. It emphasises the importance of speaking and listening skills and performing texts using actions before moving on to writing independently.
