Our Curriculum



Children at Horsford Primary School learn phonics through Letters and Sounds.

They typically learn:

Phase One, Two, Three and Four in Reception

Phase Five in Year One

Phase Six in Year Two

You can access a copy of Letters and Sounds here.


At Horsford Primary School we encourage children to read for pleasure and the children borrow a book from the school library regularly to share at home. We follow the National Curriculum and the ’Read Write Inc’ scheme is used to teach reading to some of our children. Children are taught the key skills of reading through group phonics sessions, whole class shared reading, small group guided reading and through paired or individual reading and each child takes a book home to practise that is suited to their individual needs. Children in Key Stage Two (Years Three to Six) use Accelerated Reader to support their reading.
