Our english curriculum is reliant on good quality texts to support and model our expectations of exceptional reading and writing for all of our children. Reading is supported by 'Accelerated Reader,' a programme that supports children's understanding of their reading. This is complimented by group reading sessions and support for children who find it tricky to pick-up reading first time round. A number of our children enter the school with English as a new language and they are provided with additional support to allow them to catch-up with their peers quickly.
We follow the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme and supplement this with additional resources such as Fischer Family Trust, ECAR and Five Minute Box.
