Reading & Phonics

The teaching of phonics begins as soon as children enter school. Our nursery 1 and 2 children work within Phase 1 Letters and Sounds. We begin to teach letter sounds in FS2. Phonics teaching continues throughout KS1 and in KS2 where appopriate.

We have found using a variety of reading schemes and genres to be very effective.

These include:

  • Jelly & Bean

  • Songbirds Phonics

  • Glow Worms (poetry)

  • Fireflies (non-fiction)

  • New Way

  • Oxford Reading Tree – The Magic Key

  • Project X

  • Oxford Reading Tree – Tree Tops & Classics

We teach phonics using the Ruth Miskin ‘Read, Write Inc.’ scheme and Letters and Sounds.

Children in KS2 who need further support with phonics skills use the Ruth Miskin 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.
