In school we teach phonics using the Learning Exchange Phonics into Early Spelling programme. This is supported by the use of Jolly Phonics kinaesthetic actions and stories.
As pupils move through the early stages of acquiring phonics, they practise by reading texts which are decodable from the Rigby Star Phonics, Dandelion and Jelly Bean schemes.
Once pupils have a secure knowledge of letter/sound correspondence and can blend words confidently, they access our Book Banded reading scheme which has various published schemes: Heinemann - Story Worlds; Wayland - Start Reading; Jolly Phonics - Jolly Readers; Oxford Reading Tree including Fireflies and Project X and Ginn including All Aboard and Upstarts. There are fiction and non-fiction books within each level and a variety of genres and style.
