Reading and Phonics

We follow the National Curriculum 2014.


We use a range of reading schemes and 'real' books to support children in their reading.


We use a range of reading books which match children's phonic ability including Big Cat Phonics, Dandelion Phonics and Rising Stars.


We encourage children who need extra support to use the 'PM' scheme and 'Switch on reading' skills to support their  development in this area.


Letters and Sounds forms the basis of our phonic teaching using Jolly Phonics songs and actions.


Please see our policies page for our reading and phonics policy and English offer for more information.
