Key Stage 1 phonics and reading schemes: We use a wide range of books to support our pupils and enable them to develop the ability to phonetically decode words.
“Read Write Inc” is the phonics program used to support the teaching of reading and writing in our school for pupils in Reception to Year 2.
“Oxford Reading Tree” and “Collins Big Cat” are our main reading schemes and are used in both KS1 and KS2.
We also promote reading through guided group sessions using topic related texts and further reading book schemes to engage our pupils in order to develop their reading skills.
We use a varied and wide range of reading books both fiction and non-fiction.
also use “Dandelion” in school and a scheme called “Project X” which has
been specifically developed to engage boys in reading.
