Reading and Phonics

Phonics and reading

In foundation stage and Year 1 the children participate in daily phonics lessons based on the Read Write Inc programme. The sessions are lively and enjoyable using whole class, paired and independent learning opportunities. Once the children have successfully completed the phonic screening test they will begin the Get Spelling programme which begins in Year 2.  If a child does not pass the phonic screening test then they will have further intervention to support their needs.

In addition to daily phonics and Get Spelling, the children have weekly guided reading sessions. The teacher leads these sessions focusing on comprehension skills. If a child requires further reading intervention to improve their fluency and pace then 1:1 support is made available.
