READING & PHONICS SCHEMES

Throughout the school we have an extensive range of reading books taken from several reading schemes including the Oxford Reading Tree.  Our reading books are placed into several colour bands depending upon reading age.  Your child is assessed by their teacher and placed on the band that best fits their reading age rather than their actual age. The Phonics schemes that we are currently using are:- Ruth Miskin’s – ‘Read, Write, Inc’ and ‘Phonics Play’
