Phonics and Reading Scheme


In KS1 and Lower KS2 we use primarily Letters and Sounds supported by Jolly Phonics in the teaching of Phonics.  These are carefully constructed systematic teaching programmes to teach, develop and improve phonological awareness.


We use a variety of reading schemes to develop reading skills through the school and these compliment and support the teaching of Phonics.


In KS1 we mainly use Ginn 360, Dandelions, Oxford Reading Tree and Phonics Bug.


In KS2 children move on to the Treetops Scheme and Project X reading books.


Children are encouraged to supplement their independent reading with a variety of genres.
