Writing

We are a Write Stuff school

  As a school we have adopted "The Write Stuff"- an approach to the  teaching of writing developed by Jane Constantine which brings clarity to  the mechanics of writing.  "The Write Stuff" follows a method called  "Sentence Stacking" whereby children are taught to effectively  write sentences that are stacked together chronologically and organised.  to engage children with short, intensive moments of learning that they  can then immediately apply to their own writing.

Reading Book Scheme


Collins Big Cat resources are used in EYFS and KS1, in order to support every child on their reading journey to develop a strong phonic knowledge and a love of reading. As they progress through each phonic phase, children will become fluent readers through high-quality fiction and non-fiction banded books. Each fully decodable book is expertly aligned to each child’s Letters and Sounds journey to ensure all pupils in EYFS and KS1 move from decoding words to reading fluently and for pleasure. Each pupil’s reading journey is tracked to ensure systematic progression for each pupil by their class teacher.
