Phonics and Early Reading
We believe that teaching reading is fundamental to becoming lifelong learners. At our school we follow the nationally recognised scheme 'Letters and Sounds'. This is used as the basis of phonic lessons in Early Years and KS1.
High quality texts are important for children to access freely. We have a school wide approach called ERIC which stands for everyone reads in class. At the end of each school day is a dedicated time to share a text.
Children who are early readers access a host of high quality texts as well as looking at the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.
Further resources from our last phonics evening can be found at the bottom of this page: http://www.fordhamprimary.co.uk/Early-Years/.
