Reading And Phonics
We use books linked closely to children’s phonic stage when they are learning to read. Children then practise reading these books at home. We do this alongside a rich set of core books, reading events and story time to help children develop a love of reading. Children in Yrs 3 – 6 use accelerated reader to support their independent reading alongside taught reading lessons which focus on comprehension and clarification strategies.
We teach synthetic phonics in reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and provide additional support to make sure children don’t fall behind. We also provide additional support for children in Yrs 3 – 6 who are still struggling with their phonics. We use Read Write Inc for phonics and reading in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
