Phonics and Spelling
Foundation and Key Stage 1
In foundation/Key Stage 1 we follow the RWI (ReadWriteInc) programme of synthetic phonics. Phonics is taught as a daily discrete session and embedded across the curriculum. Children are taught the forty two letter sounds of English and how to blend them to read and write words.
Key Stage 2
Children are taught spelling patterns and are provided the opportunities to use an apply these strategies in their own writing. The teaching of spelling occurs through both discrete lessons and during the warm up in some daily literacy lessons.
