We are: respectful, responsible, hopeful, friendly, truthful and we persevere.
At Hawkesley Church Primary Academy we are currently following the New National Curriculum for English. This includes Spoken Language; Reading - Word and Comprehension; Writing Composition; Writing Transcription; Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation; Spelling and Handwriting.
We have several reading schemes which we use to meet the needs of all learners. These include phonetically decodable books, narrative, non-fiction and poetry genres, classics and contemporary books. Book schemes are book banded and match age related expectations throughout all phases.
The Letters and Sounds programme is followed for the systematic teaching of phonics throughout EYFS and Key Stage 1. This is delivered through the use of a range of strategies to develop reading, speaking and listening and writing. In Key Stage 2 the Fresh Start programme is used for additional phonics teaching (when and where appropriate).
