  2. Phonics/reading


In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Phonics is taught through daily lessons using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ Programme with other supporting materials e.g. ‘Jolly Phonics’. In Key Stage 2 Phonics is taught through ‘catch-up’ intervention programmes where necessary.

Reading Scheme

The children progress as individual readers through the school reading scheme, which is mainly made up of the ‘Oxford Reading Tree’ books.

The guided reading schemes used throughout our school include Phonics Bug, Rigby Star and Reading Explorers. Children are encouraged from an early age to read books outside the scheme for example class readers, books from the school library, books from Oldham libraries, books from home and books on particular topics.
