What we teach at Woolacombe School - Helping you understand what we use to help your child learn...
In the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage One, we use Letters and Sounds as a basis for our Phonics teaching.
Our reading books are based around a variety of different schemes and they are leveled according to the Reading Recovery Programme. Alongside these readers, we have a selection of phonic based books in the EYFS and Key Stage One.
Children are expected to read every night at home and have this recorded in the Home School Reading Contact Diary. We also hold regular Reading Raffles for children who do so.
Key Stage Two reading continues the journey into competent readers and it is also complemented by the use of high-quality text as Class Readers that are closely linked with the topics studied each term.
