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
KS1 and some KS2 children are taught daily phonics using the Read Write Inc 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. Alongside this children are provided with banded books to support their reading journey.
