Phonics & Reading schemes
Whole class Phonics is taught in Reception and Key Stage 1, using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ six phase teaching programme, from the Primary National Strategy.
Letters and Sounds: Click on the link if you would like to find out more about the teaching programme.
We have a range of reading books in school, which are organised in line with the six phases of Letters & Sounds. These books are read at school and we have a selection of books to take home for extra practice.
We also have guided reading sessions in class which are led by the teachers. This time is for learning reading strategies, sharing a book in a small group and practising reading skills. We follow the 'Think 2 Read' programme from Years 2 - 6. For Reception and Year 1 children read phonetically decodable books linked to their phonics phase.
