Reading and Phonics
We place a great emphasis on the development of literacy throughout the school. Children are encouraged to speak with clarity, developing a broad vocabulary in a range of situations from small informal groups to performances for a large audience. There are a range of approaches in place for the teaching of reading: a clear phonic programme (using synthetic phonics), whole - word recognition and predicting words through understanding the picture and textual context of books. 
We use the Ruth Miskin 'Read Write inc.' phonics programme, and this is complemented by an emphasis on a stimulating reading environment: a love of reading is promoted through a careful choice of texts to be used within literacy lessons, other books that are read to the children and through whole school events (such as book weeks and the book fair).

We use the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme to support developing readers, together with a wide range of reading materials to develop fluency.
