Key Stage 1 Reading and Phonics Schemes

Our reading scheme in Reception and Year 1 is predominantly Oxford Reading Tree. This offers a good selection of texts, both fiction and non - fiction. As the children develop as more confident and fluent readers, with a good understanding they read from the books which are following the book banding scheme accessing a variety of books.

The phonic scheme we follow is Letters and Sounds along with the Jolly phonics songs and actions. We use print in Reception and Year 1, teaching cursive letter formation in Year 2.
