English - Reading
Subject Leader - Mrs Hickman
Children are taught English in line with the National Curriculum.
At Rufford Primary and Nursery School we use resources from a number of schemes, including Jolly Phonics, CLLD and Letters and Sounds to help the children to learn to decode and encode words. The teaching of phonics is lively and encourages children to be active participants in their learning. Games and group activities ensure the learning is fun. Primarily, phonics is taught from FS 1 to the end of KS1. However, some children still require phonics teaching throughout KS2 and this provision is made.
