Children are taught synthetic phonics from YR in line with the Letters & Sounds programme from the DfE.  We use a multi-sensory approach which includes 'Jolly Phonics' songs and 'Cued Articulation' actions.  Children are able to blend sounds into words to learn to read as well as segment words to write.


A variety of different reading scheme books are used which are all colour banded into the Book Band approach.  Children read a variety of fiction, poetry and non-fiction books.
