Reading and Phonics Scheme
To support our children’s development of their reading skills, the school has elected to teach phonics using Letters & Sounds . The teaching team draw upon a range of resources to meet the needs of our learners to ensure can begin and further the develop their skills to read words.
Skilled word-reading involves working out the pronunciation of unfamiliar printed words (decoding) and recognising familiar printed words. Underpinning both of these is the understanding that letters represent the sounds in spoken words. Fluent decoding supports pupils’ comprehension, because they do not have to devote mental energy to individual words. A good grasp of phonics is also important for spelling, contributing to fluency and confidence in writing.
The school has elected to support the teaching of reading using a range of books from well known authors, both fiction and non-fiction. In addition, a range of text types from the Oxford Reading Tree reading programme ensures pupils have access to appropriate text for home and class reading.
