Phonics and Reading
Children are introduced to the Oxford Reading Tree in Reception and this, together with the Song Bird and Floppy Phonics books scheme, are the basis for their reading work in Key Stage 1. Phonics learning plays a major part in our teaching of reading.
Children are taught to read on an individual basis in one to one reading sessions with a teaching adult and during group, guided reading sessions.
Children are encouraged to read with their parents at home and fill in the reading record. When children read at home they make more progress.
Phonics – Children are taught phonics using the Letters and Sounds programme. They have daily phonics lessons from the start of Reception until the end of Year 2, so that they will develop fluent word reading skills and have good foundations in spelling. During the sessions the children learn how to sound out and then blend the sounds together in order to read unfamiliar words quickly and accurately. They also learn how to segment a word into its different sounds in order to spell it.
