Here at Maryport Infants School we strive to offer our children a rich and varied curriculum based as much as possible on their own interests. We pride ourselves on the fact that our children love coming to school and enjoy the engaging and exciting lesson which our teachers take great care to plan.
We also use the specialist stills of sports teachers and a highly talented music teacher who visit the school each week to deliver high quality lessons across the school years.
Reading at Maryport Infants School
Throughout their time at Maryport Infant School the children listen to and read a broad range of quality texts. We follow a colour coded reading scheme, that is largely phonics based. Many of our books are published by Oxford Reading Tree. Recently we have added a new scheme to our collection. The new books are from Rising Stars, which we also use for Maths and assessment across KS1. The books are an interesting combination of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We aim to listen to children read, on an individual basis, twice a week and encourage children to read at home too.
