At Old Cleeve C of E First School we use a book based approach to underpin our curriculum. These high quality texts support the curriculum in each of the year groups from Foundation Stage all the way to Year 4. We aim to immerse children in a literary world, creating strong levels of engagement and provide meaningful contexts for primary English.


We follow Read Write Inc (RWI) for phonics teaching.  Children are assessed on a regular basis and taught in groups based on their stage of reading. Children follow the RWInc programme from Reception upwards, with the aim to exit the during Year 2.
