Reading and Phonics

Reading is central to all we do in school and is one of the school’s strengths.
Every morning from Year 1 to Year 6 we have Guided Reading in every class which includes reading for pleasure. We use a variety of Reading Schemes with the reading books linked to the class theme as far as possible. We teach Phonics from the Reception class up to Key Stage 2 using Read Write Inc. We use a range of quality books to immerse the children in the magic of exciting stories, poetry and fascinating information books. We teach reading skills through individual reading, small guided group teaching and whole class teaching. We make sure that all children have the necessary support to develop and progress. The school has a reading recovery teacher who provides extra support to Key Stage 1 pupils.
