All children will have experiences of speaking, listening, reading, writing, spelling and handwriting through a dedicated literacy lesson. Further, they are encouraged to reinforce the skills they have learnt by using them in cross-curricular reading and writing.

All children are encouraged to take home reading books and library books to improve their skills and to share books with adults at home. Our reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree supplemented by wider readers to enable the children to experience a wide genre of books.

Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive phonics teaching every day through Read Write Inc.
