Reading is taught through systematic synthetic phonics. We plan from the Letter and Sounds document with some Read Write Inc incorporated within the objectives. Every child from Reception to Year 2 participates in 20 minute taught phonics sessions each day. The children are grouped according to ability. Phonics homework is sent home weekly.
In EYFS and KS1 we use a wide variety of reading resources including books published by Oxford University Press, Big Cats, Read Write Inc and Rigby Star. The books are arranged into colour bands, according to their level of difficulty. The children are assessed regularly to ensure they progress to the next colour as appropriate.
