Reading and Phonics:
We follow 'Letters and Sounds' for phonics and use Bit Cat Collins phonic books to support the children with reading. Books they take home are matched to their phonic ability. We also provide the children with a banded reading book to share at home. Once the children become free readers, we have an extensive library of books that they can choose from. We create reading diaries for the children to record their daily reading in and in KS2 there are guided reading questions to answer about the text.
Where possible, we link our English teaching and learning to the topics we are studying.
In the document below, you can see the genres that are being taught for each term and the Learning Objectives that the children will achieve.
