Reading and Phonics

In EYFS, KS1 (and KS2 when necessary), we follow the Read Write Inc phonics approach. Guided reading is taught across the school, with KS1 using the Rising Stars - Reading Planet books and KS2 using a range of texts suitable to pupil needs. We currently offer Bug Club online reading for Rec - Y6, as part of a new, evolving hybrid model of printed book banded books from Oxford Reading Tree, Read Write Inc and printed Bug Club books. Due to current restrictions any returned and printed books are quarantined for 72 hours before they can be circulated again.
