Teaching Phonics and Early Literacy.
Our school follows the 'Letters and Sounds' programme to deliver phonics teaching for pupils. Staff also use 'Jolly Phonics' resources to enhance the teaching for phonics.
As a Catholic primary school and Nursery, we teach religious Education through the 'Come and See' programme with support and guidance from the Liverpool Archdiocese Christian Education Dept. RE is taught through a range of topics, each focusing on one of three themes: Christian Living, Church and Sacraments.
There are 3 stages in the process for delivering the topics in 'Come and See' - Explore, Reveal and Respond which enable pupils to develop knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes.
The needs of individual pupils are met through a range of teaching and learning styles and experiences.
'Come and See' also requires us to teach the children about other faiths and religions; these include Judaism, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism.
