Learning at our school is exciting and fun so that children love learning. Children are encouraged to take an active part in all lessons so that they are enlivened and enthused to learn even more.
Children learn in a warm, safe and caring environment, where praise and encouragement are used by teachers and children alike to develop every child's self-esteem and self-confidence as an incredible learner. In lessons children are fully aware of what they are learning and why. Children are also encouraged to steer and improve their learning in a range of ways.
We plan opportunities for our learners to solve problems, lead, explore and create in order to maximise their potential fully.
Phonics and Early Reading:
Success for All Phonics Success for All Phonics is a proven systematic synthetic phonics teaching programme for Reception to Year 1. It meets all the requirements of the National Curriculum and the EYFS framework and has been validated by the DfE. Success for All Phonics is a complete literacy programme that supports your child to learn all the skills needed to successfully read, write and spell. Each day your child will spend time revisiting phonemes and graphemes to ensure they consolidate their learning before new content is introduced through teacher led activities designed to help them oral blend, segment and read words and then sentences. They will also learn the alphabet and how to write letters in upper and lower case before beginning to write simple words and then sentences. Additionally, they will have daily opportunities to apply their learning into reading beautifully written books in a Shared Reader lesson whilst also discussing the text to develop their comprehension skills.
