Our English curriculum covers  reading, writing, GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) and speaking and listening. At Benedict Biscop Academy, we strive to develop these life-long basic skills in our pupils.

The school follows the phonics guidance from the Letters and Sounds publication to teach phonics – we do not follow a phonics scheme, however staff have access to resources such as Read Write Inc. and Jolly Phonics.

Pupils begin the reading progression by accessing picture books in the Early Years Foundation Stage to develop language. When appropriate, pupils will progress onto a phonics based reading scheme such as Oxford Reading Tree Songbirds or New Way books. In Key Stage 1, pupils progress onto an Accelerated Reader book, matched to their chronological reading age. To help support your child with reading at home, please click here.
