Class One

Please contact the school for more details about the curriculum.


Learning to read and write

Every child in Class One will receive a daily phonics lesson using phonics play planning.  This scheme introduces the children to new phonemes and graphemes and gradually builds their phonics knowledge to enable them to become independent, confident readers and writers

The children have access to a variety of books suitable for their current ability.  The class teacher will listen to each child read on a weekly basis in addition to support staff and volunteers.  We encourage children to read at home 3 x per week and for this to be recorded in a reading record book.

The school offers teacher led phonics and reading and writing workshops for parents to ensure continuity between home and school learning.  The most recent workshops were very well attended.
