KS1 Phonics & Reading Schemes

Phonics Guide for Parents

Intent  

  • Our school is determined that every pupil will learn to read, regardless of their background, needs or abilities.  
  • Our school’s phonics (Letters and Sounds) programme matches the expectations of the English national curriculum and early learning goals.  
  • Our school has clear expectations of pupils’ phonics progress term by term, from Reception to Year 2, and the school’s phonics programme aligns with these expectations.  

Nursery

Phase 1

Reception

Phase 2

Phase 3

Phase 4

Year 1

Phase 5

Phonic Screening

Year 2

Phase 6

  • The sequence of reading books we use shows a cumulative progression in phonics knowledge that is matched closely to the school's phonics programme.

Implementation

  • Pupils’ phonics progress is assessed frequently and is detailed to identify any pupil who is falling behind the programme’s pace, so that targeted support can be given immediately.  
  • The school has developed expertise in the teaching of phonics and reading that ensures consistency from one year to the next.
  • Reading, including the teaching of systematic, synthetic phonics, is taught from the beginning of Reception (or Nursery if pupils join us sooner). 
  • All teachers have a clear understanding of how pupils learn to read.
  • Teachers give pupils practice in reading and re-reading books that match the grapheme-phoneme correspondences they know, both at school and at home.  
  • Staff read aloud stories, poems, rhymes and non-fiction that develop pupils' vocabulary, language comprehension and love of reading.

Impact

  • All pupils, including the weakest readers, make progress to meet or exceed age-related expectations.   
  • Pupils are familiar with and enjoy listening to a wide range of stories, poems, rhymes and non-fiction.
