English at Mount Street
English is recognised as fundamental to the progress of a child. We teach skills to develop speaking, listening, reading and writing- including grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting.
Phonics for reading
For KS1 and some KS2 children are taught daily phonics for 20 minutes using the SFA (success for all) programme. This focuses on discrete phonic teaching of sounds; encouraging children to break words down into the individual sounds and enables children to read and write individual words and phrases.
