KS1 Reading Schemes

At Shaldon Primary School our ultimate aim is to teach children the skills to read with confidence, fluency, understanding and enjoyment. To achieve this aim, children are taught to read using both a synthetic and systematic approach to phonics.

Letters and Sounds is used to support the daily teaching of phonics in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.  In addition, the stories, actions and songs from Jolly Phonics are used to support the children in learning new sounds.

During the sequence of teaching, teachers use a range of techniques and additional resources to support progression eg magnetic letters, roll ‘n’ write letters etc
