It is our intention that our sequenced English curriculum will promote learning for life, by ensuring that children acquire the necessary literary knowledge, skills and understanding which will equip them with the fundamental tools to achieve in the academy and beyond.
At Eppleton Academy, we value reading as a key life skill and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. We believe reading is key for academic success and also a door to further learning and enjoyment.
It is our intention to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love for reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore their imagination.
Our intention is that by the time they leave Eppleton Academy, EVERY child becomes a reader in order to open doors for all, regardless of background and culture.
Some of the practical implementation of our curriculum intent can be seen in the following documents which show our procedures, systems, planning and progression maps.
We follow the National Curriculum and teach the objectives from our Reading and Writing Progression maps through a novel approach based on an English Cycle which has been designed around the needs of our children.
Phonics is taught through the progressive synthetic phonics scheme Read Write Inc. To learn more about Read Write Inc. please visit our Early Reading page on our website- follow this link: https://eppletonacademyprimary.co.uk/early-reading
