Teaching Phonics. As of Sept 2012, we have been using the Read Write Inc Phonics materials. We recently received a letter from Nick Gibb the Minister of State for School Reform congratulating us on being in the top 5% of schools nationally for our phonics results.
In September 2013, the government brought out a New National Curriculum. We have adopted this new curriculum from Sept 2014 and have mapped out below how we intend to cover all the areas. It has been a challenge to ensure progression and continuity of the curriculum throughout the juniors with so many mixed age classes. However, we believe we have cracked this with the 4 year rolling programme for Key Stage 2 and a 2 year rolling programme for Key Stage 1.
Please visit the NSPCC site for some helpful materials on keeping children safe.
Thanks to all those who came to the information evening on "Life Without Levels". I trust you found it useful. There were some questions about resources that would support learning at home.
