Reading and Phonics


We use a wide range of reading books, from Oxford Reading Tree and other popular schemes to 'real' books. The books are organised into coloured bands. Staff hear the children read at least twice a week. Children are encouraged to read daily at home. We also read to the children every day.


We teach a carefully structured phonics programme throughout the school. This is based on Letters and Sounds - but is supplemented by Jolly Phonics and LCP Phonics. We have identified the need to revisit areas of teaching throughout the school. therefore every school day starts with mixed age phonics groups. Children without gaps in their knowledge read independently during these sessions.
