Some further information regarding phonics and reading in KS1:-

Phonics 

Systematic daily phonics is taught following the Letters and Sounds Programme throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1. Pupils are grouped according to ability within each class. Progress is tracked throughout the year and groupings adjusted accordingly. Pupils in Year 1 have a National Phonics Screening Test in June. Pupils who do not achieve the expected standard re-sit the test the following year when they are in Y2.

Pupils in Year 2 who have completed Phase 5 (Letters and Sounds), begin No nonsense Spelling. This programme is taught throughout Key Stage 2.

 

Reading 

We use a variety of reading schemes throughout Key Stage One to cater for all needs – Oxford Reading Tree, Floppy Phonics and the X Project.

If you have any questions or would like any further information about the curriculum or how you can further support your child's learning at home then please speak to your child's class teacher.  

If you would like any copies of the documents on this page, the school office will be happy to print them for you.
