Elfrida Primary School

Success for today; prepared for tomorrow. Nothing is beyond our reach.

Eucalyptus - Year 1

Welcome to Eucalyptus Class

We all had a wonderful day at Buckthorne Nature Reserve. Children learnt a lot about the natural habitats of different local wildlife. The children had  the freedom to explore the environment and enjoyed looking and discovering the range of plants and mini beasts. 

At Elfrida School we follow 'Essential Letters and Sounds' DFE approved scheme to teach phonics. Phonics is the process that ensures children have the skills to break words into a sound system, building letter and word recognition. Children learn to segment words to help support their spelling ability and to blend sounds together to read words. Once phonics are learnt and children can read fluently, they can then develop other reading skills such as comprehension and acquiring knowledge in order to access the whole curriculum.
