Reading is a high priority in our school. We follow the ‘Read Write Inc’ Systematic Synthetic Phonics Scheme throughout our school, aiming to foster a love of reading in every child that attends St. Wilfrid’s.

Here is our phonic progression document: Phonic progression chart

This shows how we develop reading by establishing a strong understanding of the sounds needed to read. Watch the video below to see how we pronounce our sounds.

We have a healthy library, offering a wide range of book to read for pleasure, in addition to designated daily reading time in every classroom. We have developed our own reading spine, exposing our pupils to a wide range of high-quality texts.

This school year we have expanded our St Wilfrid’s Reading Spine to include a range of poetry books for each class and books with strong main characters from BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) backgrounds and other minority groups such as refugees, in support of 3 Syrian refugee children who joined our school in December 2021.

We are also passionate writers and to help with our grammatical understanding we have adopted ‘KUNG-FU’ punctuation. Watch our children demonstrate the main punctuation marks below.

 

ASSESSMENT

We have adapted Lancashire County Council’s Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs) document to assess our reading and writing, detailing our St Wilfrid’s non-negotiable KLIPs and elements for greater depth of understanding.
