Reading and Phonics

Reading is taught through systematic synthetic phonics addressing the objectives in the Letters and Sounds document. Children are grouped by ability and taught for 20 minutes daily.

We do not use one reading scheme - we use several and organise the books into levels / book bands of similar difficulty. Our reading resources include books published by Oxford University PressGinn and Rigby Star. Each band is represented by a colour and children are regularly assessed to ensure that they progress to the next band as appropriate.
