Phonics and Reading Schemes
Children in nursery and reception learn phonics from entry into school using the 'Letters and Sounds' document. As children progress through Key Stage 1, if they need extra support for phonics, we use Jolly Phonics or Letterland depending on the child's needs and learning style.
Our reading scheme is categorised using book bands. We use a wide range of reading schemes including Oxford Reading Tree, Ginn All Aboard, Cambridge Reading and Orion Early Readers. We have recently supplmented the reading scheme, through an £8000 investment from parent donations, with a vast amount of 'real' books so that the children have a greater variety of reading material.
Thirty three children out of the current thirty five on roll in Year 6 met the requirements for the end of key stage 2 swimming. This includes the ability to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
