Croeso to our school website! We believe that every step of your child's education is as important as the one before. With this in mind, we strive continually to provide inspiring learning experiences for children.
We are sure your child has come home recently and spoken about 'Fun With Phonics'
This is a new initiative that KS1 started off for us at the beginning of the Spring Term. It worked so well with the infants, that it was decided that the junior children should follow the programme too.
At half past 10 every day, all children from Year 1 all the way through to Year 6 relocate into their groups to work on phonics in their focus groups.
As our written language uses phonetic sounds to create words, it is this knowledge that your child needs to fully master reading and spelling.
Every day for half an hour, your child will be taught these phonic sounds in order to help them with their reading and spelling. Every child in the school will be undertaking a reading or spelling activity during this time and teaching will be targeted and focused in order to help every single child reach their full potential.
