Phonics and Reading

We believe partnership is essential to achieving success in reading. We ask parents to read daily with their children and record any comments in their home-school reading record book. We have invested in a brand new scheme to teach reading called Oxford Reading Tree.

We use Letters and Sounds as a basis for teaching Phonics in EYFS and KS1.

If children need to catch up with their Phonics and reading we use small group interventions which use a variety of methods to enable accelerated progress.

The children in Key Stage 2 use a range of guided reading books in our library, together with higher level Oxford Reading Tree books.
