In Reading, children are encouraged to develop a love of books and reading for pleasure, and our homework and in-class activities reflect this. Phonics and Spelling are taught based on the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme and learning is consolidated all the way through to the end of Year 6. We also use ‘Monster Phonics’ as an additional teaching resource.
In Writing, children develop cursive handwriting early on in their school lives, as well as building their creativity and composition for a range of genres. As reading and writing are so closely linked, we use a variety of high-quality model texts to inspire our children’s writing.
