Please note that we are currently working on our curriculum for 2019 to 2020. All the information presented below will change in September 2019.
Thank you for your patience.
At Parkend Primary School we use Letters and Sounds phonic scheme in KS1 and mostly the Oxford Owls reading scheme. We aim for the pupils to develop their confidence in phonics and reading by KS2, where the pupils are expected to become more independent in their reading choices.
There are Free Reading boxes in KS2 - pupils are encouraged to choose different naratives and authors, so that there is variety to their reading. The fully resourced library also offers a vast choice and the pupils are free to choose books from the library or their class reading corners as often as they wish.
