At KPI we believe that being able to read and write are vital life skills that open the door to all other learning. We passionately believe in helping children to develop not only the technical skills of reading and writing, but also fostering a love for reading and books.
Our teaching of reading and spelling within the school is based on the Sounds-Write programme. Formal teaching of letter-sound correspondences starts when children start in Reception and continues until a child is a confident and competent reader and speller. In our nursery, the focus is on developing phonological awareness and children are not taught letter-sound correspondences.
