Phonics and reading
Systematic synthetic daily phonics is taught following the Read Write Inc Programme throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1, beginning in the summer term of Pre-school. Pupils are grouped according to ability across the year groups. Progress is tracked throughout the year by the early reading and phonics lead and groupings are adjusted accordingly. Pupils in Year 1 have a National Phonics Screening Test in June. Pupils who do not achieve the expected standard re-sit the test the following year when they are in Y2. Fast track tutoring will be used as an intervention when required to support early reading and writing.
When pupils complete the Read Write Inc phonics programme they begin 'No-nonsense spelling'. This programme is taught throughout Key Stage 2.
We use the Read Write Inc reading scheme throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1 where books are fully decodable and correlate with where the child is up to in the scheme. Children are also sent home a book which is closely matched to their reading level from Oxford Reading Tree, Project X or Floppy Phonics and a book to read for pleasure with an adult, which will be from the school library.
If you have any questions or would like any further information about the curriculum or how you can further support your child's learning at home then please speak to your child's class teacher.
If you would like any copies of the documents on this page, the school office will be happy to print them for you.
Year 2 News and Gallery
12th October 2022 - In Science, we have been carrying out an investigation to find out what happens as humans grow from babies to adults.
It was great fun for some Year 2 pupils to visit other classes to measure the handspan of children and teachers. They then came back to class to tell us the results.
7th October 2022 - Year 2 had a visit from Robbie and his Therapy Dog, George. It was lovely to meet George and see him do some tricks. We really look forward to his next visits when we will read stories to George.
