Phonics/Reading Scheme

Phonics/Reading Scheme

At Beaufront First School in Reception and KS1 we follow Letters and Sounds as the basis of our phonics teaching. In addition we use aspects of Read Write Inc. to further illustrate the vital links between sounds and letters to give extra support to some learners. Our teaching is carefully differentiated to meet the needs of all our children.

Our reading scheme is structured around the Oxford Reading Tree scheme but is now greatly extended. We use a variety of other “scheme” books at every stage and in addition in every classroom there are books to develop understanding and discussion which the children are encouraged to take home and share with parents. The children are encouraged to take ownership of their own reading and choose their own books as soon as they feel confident to do so.
