Reading in the Infants
Information about Book Bands
Children are taught to recognise the phonics necessary to become proficient readers through ‘Letters and Sounds’. This programme teaches phonetic knowledge in an ordered and thorough way, equipping children with the necessary tools to become independent and confident readers. Children enjoy a variety of games, making learning fun eg Phonics Play. Our expert Reading Recovery teacher, Miss Gent, works to support 1:1 reading mainly with Y1 pupils on the programme. Parents/Carers are invited to weekly Fun Phonics Fridays in Foundation Stage and Phonic sessions in Year One.
