Literacy and Maths Resources.

In Foundation Phase we use the Read Write Inc phonic scheme to teach children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension.  Children will learn to form each letter, spell correctly and read confidently.    In Years 1 and 2 we continue using Read Write Inc phonic and reading resources, as well as, providing a broad and balanced literacy curriculum that embraces different learning environments, styles and genres.

To support children's numerical development we teach using lots of hands on, authentic experiences.  Below is a link for Topmarks, which is fantastic for developing children's number bonds and quick mental recall.

We Can Make Our Writing Sparkle!

In Key Stage 2 the children also use the "VCOP" tool (Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation) to construct sentences. 

They  level their own and other's sentences and then think about how they can improve them.
