KS1 Phonics and Reading


We use Letters and Sounds as the basis for our phonic scheme, however, this has been adapted and developed so that it is bespoke to the needs of our school.

Reading Schemes

in order to ensure that children have a variety of texts available for both their reading level and areas of interest, we invest heavily in books for the school.  We use texts from a range of reading schemes rather than follow a particular scheme as we believe this is the best way to ensure the texts we offer meet the needs of all pupils.  Schemes we currently have in school include (not exclusively):

  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Songbirds Phonics
  • Collins Big Cat
  • Rigby Star
  • Tree Tops
  • Project X

We also have a range of digital reading resources and interventions in school including Reading Plus, Lexis and Nessy.

  • Eco Schools
