Curriculum Planning for the Whole School
Schemes of Work
We follow the HFL book band system where the children's books are assigned a colours. These colours determine the complexity of the text and what phonics phase they are working within. Children should be able to read 95% of their book to be deemed as fluent. Furthermore, the children will need to answer questions on the text for example reasons for character's actions.
In the EYFS, we follow the Letters and Sounds scheme for coverage. We then use the HFL SuperSonic phonics lessons to teach new sounds. We track the development of sounds so that we an quickly identify children that are falling behind.
In Year 1 and Year 2, we will continue to follow the Letters and Sounds scheme. Our teachers are aware of the new pitch from the NC regarding prefixes and suffixes. They plan for these gaps. We track our teaching of phonics and spellings to ensure that the children that fall behind are quickly caught up.
