Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading

We use Letters and Sounds and the children therefore learn their phonics through phases and a variety of teaching and learning styles. The children begin by learning the first set of sounds and as soon as they know a group of sounds they can begin to sound-blend.

The main reading scheme used for guided reading is Rigby Star. A variety of schemes are used for home reading which we place into book bands. We encourage the children to read daily at home, to enable parents / carers and children to read together. More information on how we teach reading can be found on the Curriculum page.
