Wigton Infant School

English

We love reading for pleasure at Wigton Infant School. We are very lucky to have a large and very inviting library where Mrs Sefton helps children choose a book to take home. 

Outside all of our classrooms we have boxes full of books called 'Racing Readers'. Racing Readers are a range of fiction and non-fiction books. The books are a great way for children to build confidence in independent reading. Our children love the freedom of choosing their own books to take home as often as they like.

 

Phonics 

We are following the No Nonsense Phonics Scheme for our phonics sessions where children are able to learn new sounds and apply them instantly whilst broadening their vocabulary and strengthening their reading comprehension.

 

Handwriting

Our Year 1 and 2 children are enjoying following the 'Letter Join' programme for handwriting. This is helping to improve the presentation of our work.
