Our Topics

   Turrets and Tiaras

At school we are learning about the features of castles, including moats, battlements, towers and drawbridges. We are also learning that the Normans introduced the first castles.  We are also designing, building and evaluating a range of products fit for a monarch, including crowns, shields and castles with drawbridges.

You can find out more about phonics and reading in EYFS and Key Stage One on our phonics page. 

Texts are carefully chosen, both for reading in school and at home, according to children’s development with phonics. The book band progression can be found below. Texts are also assigned regularly on Reading Planet. 

Books should be 'decodable', which means that children should be able to read 90-100% of the words on the page independently using sounds they have already been taught. Re-reading books can also help children to build confidence with their decoding skills. 

Teachers will sometimes send home books that are not phonically decodable. These books are for sharing and can be read aloud to your child.
