Teachers of Phonics adapt LCP planning for Phonics teaching, based on ‘Letters and Sounds.’ Where a need is identified for more support, ‘Read Write Ink’ one-to-one tutoring programme is adapted on an individual basis.
The school has invested heavily in Oxford Reading Tree home readers and guided reading packs. In Reception Pearson resources are used up to Phase 5 and Project X Origins scheme is used by KS2 in Guided Reading. Children with additional needs access Code X reading programme providing age appropriate content for children who are gaining confidence in reading. All books have been categorised in coloured book bands. PM Benchmarking is used up to Year 3 to ensure that children are accessing the correct level of challenge in their reading. Pupils from Year 4 upwards, on the whole, access books banded to their specific year groups.
