Samlesbury Long Term Curriculum Overview:


National Curriculum (for Primary Schools)


Phonics at Samlesbury

We use a systematic synthetic approach to phonics. The children begin phonics in Reception class using ‘Letters and Sounds’.

Reading at Samlesbury

Our children begin to read using The Oxford Reading Tree/ Phonic Bug followed by progression on to our school library. We are very proud of our school library which is supported by a team of Friends of School to ensure it is up-to-date and children gain good access. We use Accelerated Reader which we feel helps children make good progress with reading alongside promoting the love of reading.
