  • Children who do not achieve the expected level at the end of Y1 must be reconsidered for a retake in Y2
  • Support has been put in place to assist all our pupils to achieve their best outcomes.
  • The school will report the result of your child’s score out of 40 along with the % who have reached the expected level by the end of the summer term.

For Phonics and Reading we follow Read,Write Inc and Letters and Sounds scheme.

Reading

Read for the stars

  • Each week a tally is kept showing each time a child returns their reading record with a signature by an adult – maximum 7 reads a week.
  • Once the child has reached 10 on the tally, their rocket can be placed on the first star in the hall.
  • Each time the child reaches a star they will receive a certificate, from the class teacher.
  • These steps are repeated until the child has 100 reads, which means they will have reached the bronze rocket.
  • At this point, Mrs Hall is informed that the child has reached the bronze rocket.
  • The child will then receive a certificate and book in assembly.
  • Their name will then be displayed on the bronze rocket.
  • The child’s name will be displayed on the silver rocket after 200 reads.
  • The child’s name will be displayed on the gold rocket after 300 reads and those children who reach the gold will be taken on a special trip.
