English is central to all learning and an integral part of all our work at Allens Croft. It is the main way for your child to develop their thoughts, feelings and ideas as well as their language expertise. Speaking and listening are fundamental to this development and our teachers plan for opportunities for children to speak in pairs, groups and to the whole class as well as through drama and role-play.
A rich variety of reading materials and frequent writing sessions enable children to acquire the essential skills required at this primary stage of their education. At Allens Croft we encourage Literacy skills to be developed in all other subjects.
At Allens Croft, we use RWInc Phonics Programme to teach children how to read and spell words.
‘Read, Write Inc.’ is a literacy programme by Ruth Miskin. The whole programme covers phonics, reading and spelling and can be used across EYFS, KS1 and KS2.
A complete literacy programme - systematic and structured.
RWinc meets the demands of the new national curriculum, giving your children the best chance of success in the national tests.
One-to-one tutoring - no child is left behind.
Storybooks align with the sounds learnt in class and therefore, the children are consolidating the phonics they have learnt and applying these skills in context
