Reading and writing
Reading and Writing:

The mechanics of reading are taught using the Read Write Inc scheme.

Children are assessed on a half termly basis, being then grouped according to their stage not their age.

This has lots of links to videos of the system that we use, details of apps for your phone and ipad etc. A great resource to use.

The LOVE of reading is taught through Guided Reading, Class books, library sessions and real books. DROP IN after school library session….Miss Whiteley


All children are expected to write in a cursive style. This is in line with the Letter join system. It is a beautiful style and begins as soon as they come in, with pre cursive writing.
