To support our classroom learning, each half term Mrs Wilkinson will give us a homework project.

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.
When pupils complete the Read Write Inc phonics programme they begin 'No-nonsense spelling'.  This programme is taught throughout Key Stage 2.  If children complete the Read Write Inc programme and still require extra support with phonics in Key Stage 2 they receive  Read Write Inc intervention (Fast Track tutoring - Year 3 & 4 and Fresh Start - Year 5 & 6)

Reading
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 very 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.

In Key Stage 2 the reading schemes used are Oxford Ready Tree Treetops and Literacy World.  Children also visit the school library each week and take a book home to enjoy with an adult.

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.
