The teaching of reading at Elm Grove is centred on the objectives for reading in the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage and the 2014 National Curriculum: Key Stage 1 and 2. We use a variety of publishing houses to ensure a range of experiences for the children in fiction, non-fiction and poetry. In Reception, Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4), guided reading books are categorised using the Book Bands for Guided Reading system.


In Reception and Key Stage 1 we take a structured approach, following the government’s Letters and Sounds programme. This is augmented using the PhonicsPlay interactive games scheme.


We are using the computing curriculum called Rising Stars for our computing lessons.
