In Early Years and Key Stage One children learn to read and write through the Read Write Inc. Phonics  and RWI Literacy and Language programme. Further details of the Read Write Inc. programme for parents can be found at http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/parents/ where tutorial videos are available for parents to support their children’s reading at home.

 

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPAG) is taught through timetabled SPAG lessons, with spelling being supported by the Read Write Inc. Spelling programme in Year 2. Handwriting is taught daily following the PenPals scheme.

 

Writing is taught through the Talk4Writing programme developed by the author Pie Corbett. This gives the children the chance to learn stories, become story tellers themselves and grow into inspired story writers. All writing is linked to children’s topic work. Further information can be found at http://www.talk4writing.co.uk.

In Key Stage Two daily guided reading sessions take place following the Accelerated Reading programme. This focuses on children’s comprehension skills. Children take a short online quiz to first assess their reading level. Children are then advised to choose books from our library within their reading level bracket. On completion of the book children complete an online comprehension quiz based on the book they have just read. Some books even have linked literacy and vocabulary quizzes linked to them as well. Children are awarded certificates based on their Accelerated Reader successes.
