Literacy at Upton Infant School is an integral part of our ethos. We believe that it allows all children to access the world around them and become active members of society. Through our planning, teaching and assessment, we will encourage pupils to:
Throughout Reception (from after Christmas) and in Year One, children will follow the Read Write Inc Literacy scheme. In Year Two, some children will continue to follow this scheme and others will begin to follow a more topic based approach to Literacy.
Early Reading and Phonics
Early reading is taught using the RWi phonic scheme. This synthetic scheme starts by teaching letter sounds and systematically progresses to children learning to decode multisyllabic words.
