Reading and Phonics in KS1
To support the teaching of phonics, we mainly use the Read, Write Inc, scheme. Children become familiar with the letter sounds using the phonics cards and we teach the phonemes in the order suggested in the RWI materials. Teachers supplement their teaching using various websites and interactive games such as Espresso and Phonics Play.
Our principal reading scheme is Collins Big Cat. Most children take home a Collins Big Cat reading book however, we supplement our reading scheme using the Oxford Reading Tree materials.
Phonics Information for Parents
Say the sounds
There are 26 letters of the alphabet but they make 44 sounds.

We also encourage the children to read a range of other books from our class library areas and books are carefully chosen to share with the children at ‘story time’ so that they are accessing a wide range of reading materials.
