Phonics Teaching and Reading
The children receive daily phonics sessions in line with the Phases from the “Letters and Sounds” programme of work in Key Stage 1, using Jolly Phonics as a basis for our Phonics teaching.
We use a variety of reading schemes within Key Stage 1 (including Oxford Reading Tree and Dandelion readers. All books are colour banded to identify the level of the text. The children are also encouraged to take home “Real Books” from the classrooms and the school library.
