Approach to phonics and reading schemes

 

Phonics is taught to all pupils, and may continue into Key Stage 2 where appropriate. We use the Letters and Sounds programme, incorporating oral, written and interactive elements each day.

Our main reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree, which runs throughout school. The main reading scheme is supplemented by a wide range of other reading material, both fiction and non-fiction. All children have the opportunity to read digital books through the Active Learn and Phonics Bug packages.

The reading scheme is organised into colour bands through which children progress at their own speed. School staff will move children through the bands when both their decoding and comprehension skills show they are ready.

 

Curriculum

Our curriculum planning has been revised in accordance with the new Primary Curriculum for September 2014. This is monitored annually to ensure coverage, a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by rich and exciting learning opportunities, and to ensure that it provides children with opportunities to develop an understanding of life in Modern Britain.

Whole School Curriculum

We will be celebrating 'World Book Day' in good old, Stanley St Andrew's style. Children are welcome to come in costume, bring in their much-loved books and we will be buddy reading throughout the whole school.
