Foundation Stage and Key Stage One begins with children following the Read, Write Inc. scheme of work.

For more information about the scheme and how you can support your child please click here.

Literacy is also supported and developed through topic based work within class and each half term children will work on a literacy theme week.


​Phonics is covered within Read Write Inc. and is supported through discrete phonics lessons in Year One.

When children have graduated from the Read Write Inc. scheme they begin literacy lessons within their class which focus on the appropriate age related writing and reading targets. These are taught to ensure a wide coverage of different genres and developing children’s skills that are linked to their current class topic, which is part of our Cornerstones curriculum.
