The Weald (CofE) Primary School

Early Years and Key Stage 1

Early Years Foundation Stage and Years 1 and 2 follow the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme.


We use a variety of reading schemes including Ginn and Oxford Reading Tree and use the PM Benchmark Book Banding System.


Regular phonics and Reading assessments (using the PM Benchmark Kit) take place each half term to monitor progress.


We use the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and National Curriculum within cross curricular topics as noted in our long term curriculum overview.  These include:  Under the Sea;  Fire and Ice;   It's A Party;  We're Going on a Bear Hunt.  These topics make links across subjects to support children's learning and understanding.
