Teaching of Reading

We follow the Ruth Miskin Literacy Programme for Phonics: Read Write Inc.


We also have a variety of Home Readers which children take home. These are from a number of reading schemes which are book banded to match the stage that the children are working on.


This scheme is delivered in Foundation Stage up until the children master their phonic skills and exit the programme, usually towards the end of Year 1 or during Year 2. These skills are, however, embedded in the spelling scheme and revisited throughout the rest of the school.


Our reading scheme consists of a variety of published reading schemes plus an online scheme called Bug Club that can be accessed on a variety of devices via www.activelearnprimary.co.uk. We also have hard copies of the books for use in group work in school. Children read books online at school at least once a week (where timetables are not altered due to special events) and are invited to read online at home as well where possible.
