Reading and Phonics
We use Letters and Sounds for our phonics programme throughout EYFS and KS1.
There are two core reading schemes used in school. From EYFS to KS2 the children follow a progressive reading scheme. Early years and KS1 children start on Oxford Reading Tree Scheme. These include a range of fiction and non-fiction books.
Children are then gradually moved on to a more advanced scheme when reaching year 2. From year 2 onwards, children read books from the Bug Club scheme which enables children to choose their own books within their level, giving them ownership of what they are reading. There are a range of fiction and non-fiction books aimed at both boys and girls. All these books have comprehension running alongside with a set of questions referring to each book.
