The National Curriculum for English divides the work into these areas;


  • Spoken Language
  • Reading
  • Writing


Through our integrated creative curriculum, Literacy will also be taught within other subject areas.

We have a variety of reading schemes which are colour level banded to ensure progression. A Guided Reading scheme, also level banded is implemented throughout the Academy.  We use Power of Reading texts to ensure that quality texts are used.

We use the Phonics Fairy phonic scheme showing progression through phases 1 to 5. Flashcards are sent home to learn. Concise recording is closely monitored to ensure progression.  Throughout the school children continue to work towards mastering all the flashcards.

Children will bring home 'readers' for daily practice. Please use the Home-Academy diary to record when you hear your child read at home.  Using the 2Eskimos reading assessment, children are recorded reading texts, accuracy and comprehension are measured.


To encourage children to see links between English and Life - we use our creative curriculum to stimulate and anchor many of our reading and writing opportunities in line with the termly topic.
