Get Caught Reading
Remember to bring in photos of you reading in various/adventurous/unusual places to add to our growing ‘Get Caught Reading’ display.
Children’s learning of phonics is an important part of their learning to read. Phonic support from home is really useful, and to assist you, we have added the link to the proper pronunciation of the sounds.
This provides all the sounds as they are taught in school so that we are all working together effectively.
The Holy Trinity English curriculum follows the Herts for Learning overviews ensuring full coverage of the curriculum. The planning provides a wide variety of texts which help to capture the interest and imaginations of pupils.
