Our approach to reading

Our aim in teaching children to read is for each child to be able to read a range of materials for enjoyment and information, understanding and responding to what they have read, whilst developing an aesthetic appreciation of the nature of language through literature and discussion.

We follow Letters and Sounds for the teaching of phonics on a daily basis, and use a range of reading schemes categorised by phonics stages.

Helping your child with reading
