Literacy

Handwriting- At Compass Point we teach handwriting using the Letter join handwriting scheme.  It is an online handwriting resource with printable resources.    This starts in Reception and is continued all the way through until the end of year 6, using a progressive approach.  In Key Stage 1 cursive handwriting is introduced and pupils are helped to become familiar with similar letter shapes and letter families. Handwriting and phonics is linked by teaching them how to spell words from the different phonics phases they are working on.

Phonics- Additional resources for learning phonics can be found at Mr Thorne on You Tube and Alphablocks on the BBC, also Phonics Play is a great website we use in school.
