INTENT, IMPLEMENTATION AND IMPACT STATEMENT
READING ROAD MAP
WRITING ROAD MAP
At St Mary's we believe that the development of language and literacy skills are of the highest priority.
The purpose of this is to:
ensure the effective delivery of the new National Curriculum for English;
enable progression and continuity throughout the school;
ensure progression and continuity throughout the school;
aid the monitoring of the teaching and learning of language.
We address language special needs throughout the school with the help and input of the SENCO, using school-based resources and those of the outside agencies.
We are aware of issues of gender and race equality and are prepared to bring about any necessary changes in the teaching of language to give equality of opportunity.
We plan termly with colleagues within Early Years, Key Stage 1, Y3 and Y4, and Y5 and Y6 to ensure continuity and progression.

As well as termly plans each teacher keeps weekly plans. Within this planning, provision is made for different teaching and learning styles and children are encouraged to work both independently and collaboratively, at their own level in order to achieve their full potential. Our planning aims to provide opportunities which will enable our children to become competent and confident listeners, speakers, readers and writers.
At St. Mary’s we use the Monster Phonics reading scheme to support the teaching of phonics.

THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL
This display in our school shows the progression in writing from Nursery to Year 6. Every term, all children complete the same writing assessment which has been adapted to suit each year group. Once the assessments have been marked teachers select 2 pieces of work for display. It is a lovely opportunity for the children to see the expectations for the future and the progression which they have made from previous years. Within their own year group children are able to identify what they need to do to move forward and improve their own writing.

At our school, we follow the Monster Phonics scheme. This is an award-winning, multi-sensory phonics programme which uses colour to consisently code for key graphemes in English. It is unique, in that it uses character (monster) phoneme cues and colour-coding to represent the long vowel sounds, silent letters and tricky letters.
