We follow the National Curriculum for English and maths, using Talk for Writing and White Rose Maths as the starting point for our learning.

Reading and Phonics Schemes

For children who are learning to read we use books from Collins Big Cat Phonics for Letters and Sounds. These books are carefully matched to the sounds children have learnt, meaning that they can confidently read the books they bring home.

Phonics teaching follows the Letters and Sounds scheme.
