Here at Fearnville we use a variety of reading schemes to teach and support your child in reading. We feel that this is needed in order for children to gain a wide range of knowledge from the schemes and to learn from a wide range of texts. We have schemes such as Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby stars, Tree Tops, Project X, PM Benchmarking amongst many others.
We also have a scheme linked to our Phonics which is called Floppy Phonics, created by Oxford Reading Tree.
Reading is such an important skill to have and we feel it is essential to encourage, teach and develop a child's reading ability at whatever stage or age they are at.
We follow the Floppy Phonics scheme created by ORT which is very closely linked to Letters and Sounds. Phonics is taught daily from Nursery to Year 2 and is also taught throughout Key Stage 2 where needed. It is taught through descrete sessions, where children play games and listen to and recognise sounds and letters in order to help them with the reading process. We teach phonics as an aid for learning to read alongside many other reading skills that are essential for children to be a competent, enthusiastic and confident reader.
If you have any questions about reading, you can contact your child's class teacher or the Reading Co-ordinator, Mrs E Robertson, in school.
