The school believes that:
“Every learner is entitled to a curriculum rich and varied, challenging and inspiring which enables every individual to fulfil her or his potential to the highest possible standards; so that all, for the benefit of all, are able to shape their destinies and create a better world.”
Children are taught in seven classes throughout the school in accordance with their age. There is one class for each year group.
Phonics Teaching at Lawford C of E Primary School
In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, we use the Phonics Bug Programme (Pearson Education) as the basis for our synthetic phonics teaching. This is an interactive approach to the teaching of phonics and is supported by a range of fiction and non-fiction books including a range of Phonics Bug eBooks which the children have access to at home as well as school.
Children enjoy the CBeebies style videos and interactive games which along with the range of books provide a motivating and interesting way to teach phonics. The Alphabet Song is a favourite of the children and is an important resource in supporting children to learn the names of the letters in the alphabet as well as knowing the sounds the letters make.
This song is available to watch on: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLSci30haL8
