Phonics, Reading and Handwriting Schemes

At Brompton-on-Swale CE Primary School we use a range of schemes to help our children learn.

To help our children learn to read, we base our planning on the Department for Education's 'Letters and Sounds' document.  To support this document, we have designed our own resources that make use of a highly engaging 'minion theme' which the children really enjoy!

Every day, the children take part in a short spelling session using the Read Write Inc. scheme.  This programme introduces a spelling rule or convention and asks children to learn, consolidate and extend their knowledge through a range of engaging activities.


We also use the Nelson handwriting scheme.  This scheme ensures that children learn to join their handwriting during Year 1 and learn an effective individual style by the time they leave the school in Year 6.

For more information on any of these schemes, please contact your child's class teacher.
