Our Nursery children are immersed in Phase One phonics (Letters and Sounds framework).This includes listening to environmental, body and instrumental sounds. Please come to our 'Stay and Play' sessions so that you can find out more about this. Nursery children are also able to borrow books from the Nursery library to take home to share with an adult.
At the beginning of the academic year Reception children focus on Phase One phonics, quickly progressing into Phase Two when they begin to learn letters and their sounds (phonemes). Children bring home letters to practice with an adult and also reading books (mainly from the Phonics Bug scheme) as they learn to read more words.
In Year One we continue to use the progression of the Letters and Sounds framework to teach phonics, with teachers using the structure of the LCP planning format.
For personalised one to one reading we use the Floppy's Phonics reading scheme supplemented by other texts from the Oxford University Press. Parents can access some home learning resources via the website Oxford Owl for Home. Children also experience group reading using various reading schemes such as Rigby Star as well as 'real' books.
