Learning to read


When your child first starts school thay are taught as systematic programme of synthetic phonics using Letters & Sounds.

Intially they will be given a book to bring home & share with you.  This book will be a book choosen by them from the class library.

Once they become confident at recognising, saying & blending letter sounds they will be given simple readers which they should sahre & then read aloud at home.

Our core reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree which is supplemented with a range of other readers including Jolly Phonics & Cats.

As children become confident readers they will begin to choose colour coded books from the school library.
