Phonics at St Barnabas C of E Primary School
All children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 have daily phonics sessions. Phonics is a crucial part of Foundation Stage and Key Stage One as it gives children confidence and helps them become independent readers and writers.
St Barnabas C of E Primary School is a Universal school for the Knowledge Transfer Centre scheme for Phonics and Reading. This is a project for phonics and reading based on Letters and Sounds developed by Literacy Consultant Ann Smallberger.
Children also learn to read and spell tricky words; words which don’t rely on phonics. Children at St Barnabas are excited to read and write new words and sentences and enjoy having these challenges.
Children in Year 2 start in September by recapping phase 5 of phonics before moving on spelling rules and patterns.
Reading at St Barnabas C of E Primary School
St Barnabas Primary School aims to foster confident, articulate children who have a love of reading. Linked with the Knowledge Transfer Centre, Foundation Stage and Key Stage One teachers have been trained on teaching shared and guided reading that encourages children to use a range of reading strategies and answer questions about the text. Children in Foundation Stage 1 access stories through continuous provision and when a book is shared and are exposed to reading in their environment. Children in Foundation Stage 2 have regular guided reading sessions and shared reading sessions.
Children in Year 1 upwards read at least once a week in a guided reading group with an adult where they have the opportunity to read and discuss a book, short story or non-fiction text alongside other children and their teacher.
We use a range of books to meet the needs and interests of all our learners such as Project X, Oxford Reading Tree, PM readers and in Key Stage Two novels and extracts that can be linked to our topics. Children work through the levels of the reading scheme, moving onto the next level when they are confidently reading around 95% accuracy on a book. Once children are confident and fluent they are exposed to a wide variety of texts and are supported to develop the higher order skills of inference and deduction.
Some children who need support with their reading receive additional support. We are a Reading Recovery School and have trained Better Reading Partners in order to help children make rapid progress in their reading.
All children get to change their home reading books as often as they want and have a home school diary for parents to record every time they listen to their child read.
Abacus is a unique maths toolkit for inspiring a love of maths and ensuring progression for every child. The scheme has been carefully crafted on a robust approach to creating inspired and confident young mathematicians. St Barnabas school has adopted this as their scheme of work to create consistency among year groups. Below is the long term plans for each of the year groups
