Reading and Phonics

As part of our reading scheme the children have access to a wide range of fiction and non fiction texts. The books are colour coded to monitor progress.

We use books from the following schemes:

New Way

Oxford Reading Tree

Jolly Phonics

Rising Stars

We use book banding to make sure that the children are reading the appropriate level of book for their age and ability.

Here is a handy guide to book banding

Here is how the bands relate to each year group. If you have any questions about your child's reading then please speak to the classteacher.

When teaching R.E we use the Salford Agreed Syllabus supplemented by Twinkl.

When teaching PSHE we use a variety of resources including 'Coram Life Education'.
