Curriculum Overview

Phonics & Reading

At St Philip’s RC Primary School we help your child to get ready for learning to read and write using phonics by developing their understanding that spoken words are made up of different sounds. Your child will take part in a high-quality phonics session every day in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 and 3-4 times a week in Year 2. These sessions are active and fun-filled with an emphasis on teaching the skills your child will need for reading and writing. The programme that we to help us to plan and teach high quality phonics sessions is called Letters and Sounds. This is a Government recommended scheme.

Nursery

In Nursery our aim is to make your child’s learning experience exciting and enjoyable through delivering a creative and stimulating curriculum which is based on the skills highlighted in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Wherever possible all learning will be linked to a common theme.

This half-term term we are learning about ‘School’, ‘Nursery Rhymes’, ‘Myself’ and ‘Family’. After October half-term the topics we will cover are ‘Autumn’, ‘Celebrations/Festivals’ and ‘Christmas’ during which you will be invited to watch your child in the Nativity play!
