Phonics and Reading
We use Jolly Phonics as our main phonics scheme in the Nursery and Reception. This is used to compliment specific teaching of phonics for pupils working at different phases. Teachers make close reference to Letters and Sounds. Phonics Play.co.uk is used throughout the school.
Our main reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree but we supplement this with texts from other schemes and ‘real’ books. Children use texts as home reading books and also during lessons. Guided reading sets of books are also used by teachers. Several ‘branches’ of the scheme are used, including home readers, Floppy’s Phonics, phonics, first readers, and tree tops.
