Phonics
EYFS Phonics :-  we follow the Letters and Sounds programme (Ref: DFES-00281-2007) supplemented by the Jolly Phonics scheme 
 
In KS1:- teachers also follow the Letters and Sounds programme, supplemented by the Jolly Phonics scheme for phase 2 & 3. Other resources are used to teach the alternative spelling patterns and different spelling rules as well as the high frequency words to be taught.
(Other resources such as phonics play/phonics bloom websites, Twinkl resources, etc)
 
Reading schemes:-
In reception and KS1 The children have access to a range of different reading books, predominantly those within the Oxford Reading scheme. These include Floppy’s Phonics books, Songbirds and Project X. By providing the children with a range of books it ensures that they not only suit their ability but also allow them to experience a range of writing styles and text types

 

Nursery

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.

Reception

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.

KS1 

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.
