We use a system of synthetic phonics following the Read Write Inc scheme to teach early reading and to give pupils the essential skills they need to be able to read and write.



We use Big Maths as our scheme to teach pupils maths basic maths skills and to promote maths fluency. Big Maths is a systematic and structured programme that ensures pupils become properly numerate.  Big Maths uses child-friendly terms such as 'Switchers' and 'Learn Its' to help children manipulate numbers confidently.  A  big maths lesson has four parts 'CLIC' - counting; learn its; it's nothing new; and calculation.
