Literacy

Our English policy is currently under review.

 

Read Write Inc.

Inspiring a love of reading is one of the fundamental priorities of the programme of English study and underpins our teaching and learning philosophy. Children will be taught the skills needed to become confident and independent readers.

We use Read Write Inc. to teach the pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to read, write and spell in a fun and engaging way. We start by teaching phonics to the children in the foundation stage. We teach the children simple ways of remembering sounds and letters.

 

How can you help your child at home?

 

  • Ask your child what sound they have learnt at school today
  • Practise reading the sounds they have already learnt
  • Practise blending sounds in order to read words
  • Read at home as often as possible
