National Curriculum Expectations

Phonics

Pupils in foundation stage and key stage 1 are taught a 20 min phonics lesson daily to enable them to develop their reading and later their spelling skills.

We base our phonics teaching and learning on the Letters and Sounds document:

Handwriting

At St Peter's we use a cursive handwriting style from Foundation Stage to Year 6.

Children first learn to form letters starting on the line and ending with a flick, when they are ready they learn to join them.
