Federation English Curriculum Intent
At Stoke Hill our English curriculum has been developed in line with the skills and objectives from the national curriculum. Learning builds year on year and vocabulary has been chosen to engage and inspire the children's curiosity. We aim within our curriculum to reflect the diversity in our school.
The Federation uses No Nonsense Literacy teaching sequences across both schools to support the implementation of writing skills from year 1 to year 6. This is supplemented by Read Write Perform and Literacy Shed. 
At Stoke Hill we are passionate about reading. We believe that children should develop a love of reading alongside the skills involved in learning to read. 
We teach early reading through Little Wandle Letters and Sounds, which is a systematic and synthetic phonics programme. For more information to our approach to teaching phonics please click on our phonics page.
At the Junior School we have an emphasis on good quality texts that inspire and engage children in their enjoyment of reading. We use the Accelerated Reader programme to measure children's progress in key skills.
