Reading & Phonics
The teaching of phonics and reading begins when a child enters the reception class and progresses throughout KS1 and KS2.
We have found using a variety of reading schemes and genres to be very effective.
Jelly & Bean
Glow Worms (poetry)
Oxford Reading Tree – The Magic Key
Oxford Reading Tree – Tree Tops & Classics
We teach phonics using the Ruth Miskin ‘Read, Write Inc.’ scheme.
Children in KS2 who need further support with phonics skills use the Ruth Miskin ‘Fresh Start’ scheme (based on the same principles of the Read, Write Inc. scheme)
Below you will find a series of information and tutorial videos explaining the basics of Read Write Inc. Phonics. If your child is learning to read with our programme, these videos will help you support them at home.
