Key Stage 1

Reading and Spelling


In KS1 we teach children to read and spell alongside our phonics teaching, which is based on the letters and sounds programme.  In addition, they also need to be able to read and spell common exception words, multisyllabic words, words with different suffixes, contracted words and numbers.
We aim for all Year 1 children to be able to read and spell the letters and sounds phonics phases and the 2014 Reading Writing assessment Y1 checklist by the end of Year 1. 
When they are ready, children will move onto the 2014 Reading Writing assessment Y2 checklist, the letters and sounds 200 HFW and the Maths HFW lists, (completing them by the end of Year 2).
