Reading and Phonics

 

Enjoyment of reading is at the heart of St Paul's.  Children are encouraged to read daily and experience a range of texts.  Children follow the Oxford Reading Tree scheme which support systematic progression in the context of engaging literature.  Alongside this children take a home reader book home to enrich their reading repertoire.  In addition to this every child visits the school library weekly to select a book of their own choice.  

 

Phonics and spelling is taught throughout literacy lessons and the wider curriculum including daily dedicated phonics sessions in Early Years and Key Stage 1.  We use a range of schemes with teachers selecting the most effective strategies from a variety of published schemes available.

Homework


There is a homework programme throughout the school. At the start of each academic year we send home a Home School Agreement outlining our commitment to pupils and parents and saying what we expect from them. This includes an outline of the homework that will be set in that year. We ask that pupils and parents acknowledge their responsibilities by signing and returning a section of the agreement. We believe that pupils need time to consolidate their learning, opportunities to do their learning in real life situations and to develop the self discipline needed to work independently. We also feel that homework allows parents to see what their child is doing and understand their strengths and weaknesses as learners.

We rely on parents to give reading practice on a daily basis so that we can focus on teaching the skills of reading. All children have reading diaries so parents can record what children have read and any comments they feel will be helpful to the teacher.

From Year 1 to year 6, children have homework diaries in which to record their homework set. Our Homework is set within the Government guidelines which state:

Years 1 and 2: 1 hour weekly (Reading, spellings and other literacy work and number work)

Years 3 and 4: 1.5 hours weekly (As for years 1 & 2 with occasional assignments in other subjects)

Years 5 and 6: Up to 30 minutes per day (Regular weekly schedule with continued emphasis on English and Maths, also ranging through the National Curriculum)

Daily reading can be a part of weekly homework.
