The Curriculum at Ravenswood Primary School
Ravenswood's teaching staff and subject leaders have created an overview of the topics/areas to be covered each term. Our school curriculum covers the requirements of the National Curriculum (2014). We use the IPC which link subjects together into a thematic approach to learning.
How we teach phonics
From their very first days in school our pupils are submerged in high quality systematic teaching of phonics.
We follow ‘Letters and Sounds’. This is a six-phase teaching programme. We aim for all children to be secure with the basic skills to enable them to access the curriculum. Lessons are delivered in a fun way, taking into account the differing learning styles of all pupils. Initially an emphasis is placed on environmental sounds. Pupils then move on to learning single sounds and letter clusters to enable them to read.
