Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading in School

Children in EYFS use ‘Jolly Phonics‘ to help learn sounds. The teaching of early reading in EYFS and Key Stage 1 is also supported by resources from the Letters and Sounds programme.

We use a combination of reading schemes throughout school. These include Oxford Reading Tree and Project-X, giving a variety of fiction and non-fiction books to develop children’s reading. The Code-X reading scheme is also used as a reading intervention for children throughout school.

Our daily phonics sessions are fun and involve lots of speaking and listening through a variety of activities and games. The emphasis is on children’s active participation – they learn to use their phonics knowledge for reading, writing and in their independent play.

Below are some videos which parents may find useful in supporting their child with their progress in phonics.
