Manor Fields Primary School


Throughout Key Stage 1 and 2, we teach the skills of speaking and listening, reading and writing daily. We strive to encourage creativity in the use of language and ‘grammar for writing’ is an embedded element of the English curriculum.

We recognise the important roles of both the teacher and the family in supporting the development of reading and previous accreditation as a ‘Reading for Pleasure’ School is testament to this approach.

To support the development of reading skills, we use an expansive range of reading materials from published scheme books (such as Reading Bugs) to the classics. Dependent upon their age and stage, every child participates in a phonics or spelling session every day.

“Sounds Write©” is the scheme we follow to teach phonics and a range of materials are used to teach spelling. As a PiXL school, children can access an App to help support the development of their vocabulary.
