Phonics

For Early Years phonics we follow the Read Write Inc. programme to provide a creative and cohesive approach to teaching children to read and write.

In KS1+2 we follow the Oxford Reading Tree, the UK’s number one reading programme. It has inspired a love of reading in over 30 million children worldwide. With its well-loved characters, fine levelling and unrivalled support, Oxford Reading Tree helps your children to become confident readers.

  • Rigorous synthetic phonics teaching gives children a secure first step on their reading journey

Science

From February 2017 we will be using the Developing Experts programme for our science lessons.

A storytelling approach, practical experiments and quizzes, ensure every learner has access to outstanding lesson content, fully mapped against the National Curriculum.

We embrace a hands on learning experience delivered through a range of fully demonstrated practical experiments. These are designed to develop learners’ understanding through a variance theory approach, enabling learners to explore each concept taught through a number of ways.
