Curriculum and Phonics
At Wickford Church of England School we teach the HEARTS curriculum, which can be found above. The Trust employs three Directors of Learning to oversee the curriculum. For more information the Directors of Learning can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is how we teach reading at Wickford Church of England School.
See this link to see the order of how we teach letter sounds.
Some parents have told us that they would like to have a model of how to say all our ERR sounds.
This link takes you to a video which shows all the sounds very clearly.
We recommend that you start watching at 1 minute 48 seconds. Click HERE
As this is on YouTube we advise that your child does not watch this without adult supervision.
