Our Curriculum

 

At Meonstoke Infant School we believe that the first few years of your child’s life are crucial in developing a lifelong love of learning and positive attitudes to school.

 

Whilst the key skills in English, Maths and IT are vital and these underpin all of our curriculum as well as being taught discretely, we also firmly believe that learning should be FUN, CREATIVE, HANDS ON and encourage PROBLEM SOLVING AND ENQUIRY

Reading scheme and phonics

We have many reading schemes that we use and children can dip in and out of them according to their interests. These are colour banded in order to be able to check age appropriateness and understanding. 

 

We use Ruth Miskin phonics symbols alongside the TES grammar and phonics programme, and introduce these to the children using "Jolly Phonics" actions and "letters and Sounds" formation of letters and numbers.
