Curriculum

Our curriculum has been designed to incorporate fully the National Curriculum and
more, and is based on a set of principles, which lies at the heart of the school’s
philosophy and approach:

  • Children are entitled to a broad, balanced, relevant, coherent, progressive and differentiated curriculum; 
  • At all stages of a child’s development learning should be stimulating, enjoyable and a worthwhile experience in its own right; Equality of access and equality of opportunity should underpin provision for all pupils regardless of sex, race, religious belief, cultural background or disability.

 

Reading at Carnagill

English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils, therefore, who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised’  

 

 National Curriculum for English

 Teaching reading, including Guided Reading

 

We use Letters and Sounds, the related Phonics play resources and Read Write Inc Sound cards to teach Early Reading. (See the Phonics Policy for more information).

 

Reading is taught in individual, paired or small group Guided reading sessions. Oxford Reading Tree (Songbirds, Floppy’s Phonics, Oxford Reading Tree spine), Rigby Star and ‘real’ books are used within these sessions.

 

Early Reading is taught using Dandelion Readers. This is also used along with the Talisman series as a catch up programme in KS1 and 2.

 

Home Readers at Carnagill

Children bring home a reading book. This will usually be an Oxford Reading tree book. (Songbirds, Floppy’s Phonics, Oxford Reading Tree spine, Project x or Alien Adventures). Children are also encouraged to read and discuss their own books at home.

Reading for Pleasure

We provide daily opportunities to read for pleasure and information as well as making the most of reading celebrations such as World Book Day.
