Support Guides for English

We hope these guides will be useful and give you a flavour of how English is taught at Whitestone Infant School.

Please note: These guides are currently being updated to reflect the Read, Write Inc programme that is now being taught in school. The way reading is being taught in school has changed. We no longer do weekly guided reading sessions throughout school.  The guides refer to 'Letters and sounds' which is no longer the program taught for phonics. Some of the letter formation is different too (k and f) 

Watch this space.... amended guidelines and policies are due to be published in Spring 2020 if not sooner. 

We are pleased to say that the Early Reading and Phonics & Spelling Guides have been updated.
