Key Stage 1 and 2 classes –

Essential delivery taking place each week:

Literacy/Numeracy/Science/ PE and or swimming/ IT cross curricular

All pupils will have access to all areas of the curriculum fully adapted and taught to the pupils needs.

We teach phonics through a systematic approach that allows pupils to learn at their own pace. This allows pupils to learn, practice and generalise these skills so that they become functional skills. We follow the DFE publication ‘Letters and Sounds’ where pupils can move through 6 phases. We also uses Jolly Phonics which supports all types of learners. Phonic activities are totally differentiated and tailored to individual learning styles and needs. These are taught through a total communication approach.

Where it is felt appropriate pupils are given suitable reading materials which support pupils phonic knowledge and comprehension.

We  follow a  topic cycle and should evidence application of all other subjects across the year including PSHCE and MFL (this has increased weighting at KS2).

The point for monitoring subject delivery will be in teacher planning and progress monitored through Connecting Steps
