Phonics and Reading at Key Stage 1

Early reading skills with: Letters and Sounds, and Ginn Lighthouse/Rigby Star reading schemes
Teachers in Key Stage One build on the strong reading skills developed through the synthetic phonic approach in Reception and follow several reading schemes to widen the children’s reading experience. They regularly send home reading books, and parents are kept fully informed of progress in a reading record book which goes home daily and provides a valuable link between home and school.

Phonics and Spelling
Children Key Stage One receive a consistent approach to phonics using a programme called Letters and Sounds. Every pupil in Key Stage One works through the programme to help them decode (sound out) words that they read and spell. We have a robust assessment and tracking system which ensures all children are challenged and supported appropriately.
