How do we teach reading and phonics at Field End Infants?
We teach a systematic synthetic phonics programme throughout school from Nursery to Year Two which equips children with the skills they need to be able to decode and read words. We have devised a bespoke long term plan that is based on the Letters and Sounds framework whilst also ensuring statutory National Curriculum content is covered. The plan aligns with our reading scheme, 'Dandelion Readers,' allowing children to use their reading books to practise reading words containing the sounds they have been learning in school. Once children are secure in Phase Five sounds towards the end of Year One, they begin to read books from the Oxford Reading Tree scheme, which offers access to wide range of texts for independent reading. We take pride in encouraging a love of reading through sharing stories, non-fiction and poetry together and visiting our beautiful school library.
