Phonics and Early Reading
At Carnforth Community Primary School, language acquisition is paramount to ensuring children access the whole curriculum effectively. We strive to be good role models as we interact with children and value quality dialogue. The use of first-hand experiences and quality texts across the curriculum further develops children’s understanding of questioning, language and builds up a purposeful and meaningful vocabulary.
We instill a love of reading in our children through providing them with daily opportunities to read and tell stories with adults and peers. A systematic approach to teaching phonics ensures children develop fluency and confidence in reading and spelling.
