With our early readers we use Twinkle Phonics  - a systematic, synthetic phonics programme. 

Every term we hold a Share a Story event

to promote and maintain positive attitudes to reading


 Share a Story: Travelling Tales

The month of May is the annual National Share a Story Month and this year the Federation of Children’s Book Groups has chosen the theme: Travelling Tales - stories that involve any sort of travel, from the usual trains, boats and planes, to journeys through time and space. 


During the week beginning 20th May and June 3rd we celebrated by: 

  • exploring travelling tales and stories by a range of authors

  • coming together as a school for special assemblies

  • having themed dress up days 

  • holding special events in the school library

  • holding competitions, such as make your own story train and send in your photos of reading when on a journey. 

  • travelling back in time - we looked at what was buried in the school time capsule 2007 and thought of new items to update it. We also linked this event to our history topics, for example, year 5 completed a 'Viking Challenge'

  •  going on trips and visits which involved travelling by train, boat, coach and vintage bus

  • learning lots of songs linked to the theme of travelling
