Phonics & Reading

 

Reading

We encourage the children as readers, to select texts for purpose and pleasure. Books and reading are at the heart of everything we do.

Our aim is to provide timetabled guided reading and independent reading time based around Assessment Focuses that provide progression in learning while identifying next steps. 

We intend to enhance and engage learning through activities and events that promote reading for pleasure, including open-door story time events, competitions such as extreme reading and reading detectives, and visits by poets and authors. 

Phonics

The systematic teaching of phonics has a high priority throughout Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.  Phonics is taught daily to all children is taught daily to all children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and those in Year 2 and 3 who have not passed phonics screening in Year 1.  Staff systematically teach learners the relationship between sounds and the written spelling patterns, or graphemes, which represent them. As a school we follow letters and sounds supported by the actions from the Jolly Phonics scheme of work.
