In Reception pupils are taught reading skills following the EYFS, Letters and Sounds, Jolly Phonics and Action Words. As they become competent readers they start to take reading books home with a home/school booklet.
Letters & Sounds, Jolly Phonics, Action Words and individual reading continue throughout Key Stage 1 where there is also guided reading running alongside national curriculum. Reading skills are developed through cross curricular links.
Schemes used include:- Ginn Reading 360, Oxford Reading Tree, Sound Start (Nelson Thornes), New Way (Nelson), Link Up.
