English Curriculum



We follow the Read Write Inc. Phonics scheme (Ruth Miskin/OUP) in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. Children have a reading book which is linked closely to what they are learning in school. We expect that children following Read Write Inc.  will read this book at home every day to support their learning.

In addition, children may also bring home a book to share with an adult at home, however, this is not a book that they will be expected to read themselves but to enjoy together with an adult.

Reading and Writing after Read Write Inc:

Once children have completed the Read Write Inc. scheme, they follow our reading and writing curricula, which can be found using the 'Curriculum Overviews' button. We have a Book Spine of key texts that we teach throughout school and teachers also read daily to their classes.

Children move on to colour banded reading books (see 'Book Bands Information for Parents' below) after completing Read Write Inc. .

We expect children to read at home regularly and at least 3 times per week.



We follow the Spelling Shed spelling scheme in Key Stage 2. 


All children have a Spelling Shed login and are set spelling homework weekly.
