The school uses the Read Write Inc. approach to the early teaching of reading. This phonics programme is highly successful, very much enjoyed by the children and helps to encourage a love of books.
Children progress through a highly structured programme and then move onto age appropriate spellings, using a range of resources, including "Get Spelling".
We also hold regular parent information and open classroom events so that they are able to support their children with the move towards reading.
We have recently started to use Accelerated Reader, a web-based programme that supports and promotes stronger readers with their reading comprehension. Please click on the link below for more information:
