Learning to read

At North Nibley we teach reading, initially through a system of ‘phonics’. ‘Phonics is the word used to describe the sounds that letters make.  We include a lot more information on the following page – Our page on phonics.

How is learning organised?

Children typically spend 7 years at North Nibley C of E Primary. We have four classrooms and each has a full-time class teacher. In order to organise the learning to which each child is entitled, we have a rolling programme of topics, through which the key skills and understanding are taught. Each term the class teacher writes to parents and carers to give an overview of the learning that will be covered.
