Reading and Phonics


At school the Early Years Phase follows the National Curriculum Phonics scheme which is supplemented by the Letters and Sounds scheme.

The links below will take you to some resources which will help your child with learning phonics.

The school uses the Book Band System for the Reading Scheme. The Oxford Reading Scheme is the base scheme we use for our reading in school and this is supplemented with a wide range of other schemes at each level. We also try to ensure that there are some story books at each level for the children to read.
