Phonics is taught from Nursery, but begins formally in Reception.  We use the LCP scheme which is supported by Letters and Sounds.  In addition to this we use the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc Sound Cards.

Sharing Good Practice

Talk for Writing

We use Talk for Writing strategies across school to develop speaking and listening, reading and writing.  In recent years we have developed this greatly and feel it makes a real difference to pupil outcomes in English.  During 2016-17 we are leading a project within our Teaching School Alliance which involves our teachers training other teachers to deliver Talk for Writing more effectively in their schools.


Hot Writing

Each term we display samples of Hot Writing from across school.  Children enjoy seeing their work, and that of their friends and other pupils in school.  It helps to raise their aspirations and see 'What a good one looks like' (WAGOLL).

Sharing Assemblies

Each term, there are assemblies which focus on English, and the development of writing in particular.  The documents below show examples of work which has been shared through Assembly.
