Phonics and Reading

Our English Coordinator is Miss Wolfe

 Phonics are taught from foundation 1 through to Year 2 in daily 15 - 30 minute lessons.  Phonic teaching continues through Key Stage 2 and intervention is given to those children who need support.

 We follow letters and sounds in Key Stage 1 and Support for Spelling in Key Stage 2 which aims to develop children who can confidently blend words to read and segment words to spell.

Through our reading scheme we aim to encourage children to approach all books with enthusiasm and interest.  Books in our reading scheme have been carefully chosen to cover a wide range of genre including non-fiction.  The interest of boys, girls and equal opportunities have been considered.  Our books are continually updated.
