At All Saints we follow the program called ‘Sounds Together’. Sounds Together is a complete, systematic, synthetic phonics teaching programme for use in YR and KS1 to ensure that children reach the expected standard of phonic decoding by the time of the Y1 phonics screening check.
All Saints C of E Infants and Pre-School uses the Kingston Cursive Handwriting Scheme. We believe cursive writing is an integral part of the multisensory technique enabling pupils to make the automatic symbol-sound relationship for spelling. It also aids the left to right movements through each word across the page. It aids legibility, especially for those with motor and spatial difficulties, providing a motor training programme and it will eventually help our children to increase the speed of their writing.
