Reading and Phonics

 

We teach Phonics from Reception to Year 3 using Letters and Sounds. There is a daily 20 minute lesson from 9am and we use a variety of approaches to ensure cotinued motivation and engagement from all the children. We group children according to the phase they are working on, enabling all children to make the best progress.

Reading is taught through both individual and guided reading sessions. The main scheme we use is Oxford Reading Tree but this is supplemented by books from other schemes. The books are colour coded allowing children to read a breadth of books at the appropriate level.
