Phonics and Reading Schemes


The children are taught phonics using the Knowledge Transfer Centre (KTC) approach. This is a systematic and consistent approach which is taught for 20 minutes every day. The children are taught new sounds, key phrases and terminology. These are then used to support reading during guided reading and writing lessons.

Reading Schemes

We have created our own home reading scheme from a wide selection of books. The books are colour banded and reading recovery levelled to give finely graded steps throughout.

The children also read a wide selection of colour banded books during guided reading, as well as big books for shared reading.
