Phonics Teaching and Reading Schemes
Children are taught systematic, synthetic phonics in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One. Teachers follow Letters and Sounds from the DfE and also draw extensively on resources from Jolly Phonics. Children in our nursery class are gradually introduced to letter sounds and symbols and engage in games to help them develop the ability to listen out for and to discriminate between sounds (Phase One). This is built on for all children in Reception to Y2 with daily, rigorous phonics teaching which develops the skills of decoding and encoding as they move from Phase One towards Phase Six Phonics.
In Foundation and Key Stage One, children use Phonics Bug, a scheme published by Pearson. Phonics Bug is a reading scheme based on systematic synthetic phonics, which links directly to Letters and Sounds Phases 2-6. Each set of books (both fiction and non-fiction titles) has a direct link to a particular number of graphemes and phonemes which correspond to each phase. Each book is also linked to the national Book Band colour scheme so that other banded books in school (from a range of published schemes and publishers) can be chosen as home readers, even though they are not in the core scheme. The scheme is linked to each year and term; therefore if a child is meeting targets at each stage, they will be on track to reach a minimum of National age-related expectations.
