Reading scheme used in school

The reading scheme we use in school is called Read Write Inc. 

This literacy programme was developed by Ruth Miskin, published by Oxford University Press and is taught in over 5000 schools throughout the United Kingdom.

Our pupils will focus on learning sounds and the letters that represent them, along with learning how to form the letters. The books that are then read are written using only the letters the pupils have learnt (along with a few separately taught ‘tricky words’) which will help when building up confidence in reading.

NEW - Healthier Together Website

On the new South Yorkshire NHS website www.sybhealthiertogether.nhs.uk families and young people will find advice on what 'red-flag' signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what to do to keep an unwell child comfortable and how long symptoms should last, for a wide range of health conditions, including rashes, coughs, asthma, bronchiolitis, fever and many others.

Healthier Together was launched to provide families, children and young people across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw with consistent and high-quality advice from local health and care professionals.

The website will help families become aware of the common winter illnesses and as a result give them the necessary information to make the right decisions.
