The opportunities, organisation and provision for the teaching and learning of reading are as follows:

  • Shared reading
  • Guided reading
  • Independent reading
  • Phonics – Read Write Inc Phonics
  • Resources – Read Write Inc books, or book banded reading scheme (Oxford Reading Tree) that operates to Level 20. Children are also free to choose from a wide range of texts. Reading materials include fiction and nonfiction, comics, annuals, digital texts, audio texts. Every classroom has a well-stocked reading area.
  • Links to parents – Each child has a reading record book which logs books they have read and comments about their reading. Parents and teaching staff write in this book.
  • Class books: Stories are read to the children on a daily basis throughout the school.
  • Reading at home: Children are expected to read/share books at home every day.





  • We use Read Write Inc. Phonics to teach the children phonics. Parent videos are available here. For further information you can also view:
