Phonics and reading

The school follows the Twikl phonics scheme which takes the best principles of Sounds-Write and Read-Write-Inc into one holistic programme.

 

We do not have a specific "reading scheme." We have a large selection of reading books available in each classroom and our library that children have free access to, many of which are coded to Accerated Reader.  Acceralated Reader is used with pupils from Year 2 upwards for assessement of reading skills and progress.
