Phonics & Reading

We started to use the Read Write Inc Phonics Scheme to teach synthetic phonics in January 2014. This scheme is now used to teach synthetic phonics across the school. Children are assessed half termly and are taught in sets by ability for Phonics. All Teachers and Teaching Assistants teach Phonics daily, they provide a 15 min Phonics lesson for every child.

We use a variety of Reading schemes in school, including: Oxford Reading Tree, Collins Big Cat, Ginn and many more schemes to ensure children read a wide variety of texts both fiction and non-fiction.
