Teaching of Phonics and Reading

Initially the Letters and Sounds Programme is used to introduce children to the first stages of Reading and Spelling. Children progress through the scheme learning more complex phonemes and prefixes and suffixes.

Children begin reading books from Reception using a variety of books from different Reading Schemes to provide a graded development. Progess is measured using the PM Benchmarks.
