We use the Jolly Phonics scheme alongside ‘Letters and Sounds’ to teach a daily phonics lesson to children in EYFS and Year 1. In Year 2, phonics provision continues and is taught alongside discrete teaching of spelling patterns and common exceptions.
We primarily uses the ‘Oxford Reading Tree’ and ‘Rigby’ reading schemes but supplement these schemes with reading books from a number of similar high quality schemes. Pupils have access to a rich range of reading material, linked closely to phonic progression in the early stages of reading. Through close partnership with parents/carers and encouragement to read at home daily in addition to reading in school, teachers place great emphasis on the enjoyment of reading for pleasure and to learn new things.
