Key Stage One Reading and Phonics Scheme

Reading Scheme

The school currently uses a range of different books to deliver its reading including: Rigby Star, Rigby Rocket, Bug Club, Oxford Reading Tree and Rapid.

These books help the children to build on the phonics work that they do in class every day. Reading is taught through: shared, guided and individual reading sessions.

Children also bring home a reading book alongside their reading record each night. We ask that you try to read with your child each night and fill in their reading record letting us know how they have got on and any words they may have needed support with.


The school uses the ‘Letters and Sounds’ phonics programme which starts in Reception and continues through Key Stage One. This has been highly successful in delivering for all of the children in our school. If you would like any further information or details on the programme please click on the link below:

The school also uses ‘Phonics Play’ to support in delivering Phonics throughout the school. Our phonics sessions are taught daily for 30 minutes with the first 10 minutes focussing on¬†handwriting and the application of writing and the last 20 minutes focussing on the revisiting, teaching and application of reading.
