Phonics and Reading Used at Key Stage 1

Letters and Sounds are used as the basis for our phonics teaching. Alongside this we use Jolly Phonics to teach actual sounds using actions and songs. Phonics Play is also used as an interactive resource to support children in the application of their phonics skills.

A variety of texts are used for reading from various schemes such as Project X and Oxford Reading Tree. All books are colour coded through the colour book band scheme presented by the UK Reading Recovery National Network.
