Phonics

EYFS and Key Stage 1 Phonics and Reading Schemes

St James' RC Primary School we follow ‘Letters & Sounds’ to teach phonics. This is supplemented by ‘Jolly Phonics’ and 'Phonics Play Website'. In Reception class a weekly phonics book is sent home so that parents are kept informed of the new sounds covered each week. For reading we use a range of reading schemes throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1 to promote a love of reading. Our books are levelled using the book banding system. All the reading books encourage pupils to use, practise and develop their phonic skills. A reading record book also goes home with each child to help parents communicate with the class teacher. Pupils are encouraged to read at home every evening and discuss the story with their parents and carers. Reading books are changed regularly.
