Phonics Progression Map
Updated: 02/12/2021 437 KB
For phonics, we teach Synthetic Phonics, following the Letters and Sounds progression. We use Twinkl and Letters and Sounds as a basis for our daily phonics teaching, which is done in groups, according to the banded level at which each child is currently working. We are currently teaching these daily sessions up to Year 3 and Spelling lessons combined with phonics interventions up to Year 6. Reading books throughout EYFS/KS1 are organised through the phonics levels so that a child will be supplied with a book at the appropriate phonics/reading level.

Writing Assessment
Updated: 31/08/2021 18 KB
Each half term, we ask the children to do a piece of writing independently, which we assess to establish whether the children are making the expected progress and to highlight areas for development. It is a good opportunity to celebrate the child's achievements. These are moderated regularly.
