  1. Phonics & Reading

Phonics

We follow the Letters and Sounds Phonic Scheme.

KS1 children participate in a phonic lesson every day and some children continue to access phonic teaching when needed beyond KS1.

Nursery Pupils: work on phase 1

Reception Pupils: work on Phases 1-4, but not all children may be ready for phase 4.

Year 1 Pupils: work on Phase 4 and 5. 

Year 2 Pupils: work on Phase 6.

Phonics Progression Grid

In Year 1 children complete the Phonic Screening Check assessment. Every year we hold a parent meetings to give you more information about this assessment. If children do not meet the expected standard they would resit this assessment in year 2. Information is sent to parents to let them know the outcome of their child's assessment.

Reading

We use a range of different texts to develop children's reading skills and to foster a love of reading.

These include books from the following reading schemes: Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Phonic Bugs, Collins Big Cat and many many more.

Children are assessed regularly to ensure they are placed on the correct national book band.

We hope that children will be able to experience a wider range of books by using a variety of schemes which appeal to different learners.

Readers can follow their interests and develop good reading habits for life.
