In August, 5 students from Kirkleatham Hall School represented the North of England at the Special Olympics National Games. They performed brilliantly in their respective sports and came away with a haul of medals, Mica (3 bronze), Cian and Stuart (silver for 1st team), Ben and Luke (gold for 2nd team). All the students were a credit to our school and we are very proud of their achievements.

"Unlocking Potential"

Phase 2

To teach the pupils at least 19 letters and to develop their ability from being able to orally blend letters to being able to blend and segment individual letters. This phase is taught using the phonetic sounds of individual letters and then starting to blend them. On completion of this phase students will start to be able to read CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words such as cat or dog. Within school we have a number of books that are fully decodable (books that only contain words that are phonetically true, words that when read are made up of regular phonemes i.e cat is ‘c’ ‘a’ ‘t’). During this phase we will also start to teach the pupils some ‘tricky words’ that are not phonetically true for example ‘to’ or ‘no’.
