Our Learning Strategies

Class of children reading books

Reading
We place the highest emphasis on teaching our children to read. To enable us to have a consistent approach to the learning of phonics and reading, we use a programme called Read, Write Inc. This is a proven phonics scheme and we are delighted with the results we are achieving. Each day children are grouped according to their ability in reading and are taught phonics, reading and spelling for one hour. We regularly hold parent information meetings to explain how you can support your child at home.

Once children have progressed through the Read, Write Inc programme, they are ready to read independently and develop higher order reading skills. Teacher led guided reading sessions take place every day in Key Stage 2 and we use a motivational programme to support independent reading called Accelerated Reader.

Numeracy
We have a clear Maths calculation policy which enables the same strategies and methods to be taught across the school. We begin every day with a Numeracy session and children a grouped as much as possible according to their ability.
