Phonics and Reading

We strive to teach all our children to read and to enjoy a variety of texts so that they will become independent, critical, fluent, life-long readers and learners. We believe reading is a vital skill and this belief underpins the huge emphasis we place on the teaching of reading in our school.


Daily phonics lessons take place in Reception and Key Stage One to teach early reading. The phonics programme we follow is called ‘Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised’.
