At Hunmanby Primary School we follow the National Curriculum.


EYFS Statutory Framework

In EYFS, we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.


At Hunmanby Primary School, children have a wealth of reading opportunities in the course of the school day, in which to develop and extend their skills, confidence and interest, including guided reading, regular independent reading and reading with an adult.

Reading and Phonic Schemes in Early Years and Key Stage 1

To teach phonics and early reading in EYFS and Key Stage 1, we follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised programme (from September 2021).  When children have completed the phonics programme (usually in Year 2), they move to the school’s chosen spelling scheme (Rising Stars Spelling).  We ensure our curriculum is interactive and engaging for all.

Children read phonically decodable reading resources, including Big Cat for Little Wandle Letters and Sounds and Big Cat Phonics readers, directly matched to their individual phonics knowledge and needs.  Children work through the reading scheme, following careful assessments of phonics knowledge by teachers. Parent/ Carers are invited to information evening meetings covering Early Years and KS1 Reading, Phonics and Maths.

Reading and Spelling in Key Stage 2

In KS2 (and in Year 2 where appropriate), we use the Rising Stars Spelling scheme. to develop spelling strategies.  Children progress from phonically decodable reading books to the KS2 system and then onto ‘free readers’ in their independent reading. We also use Reading For Inference as an approach to reading as well as an intervention.
