St Margaret's CE Primary











 Reading and Phonics in KS1

To support the teaching of phonics, we mainly use the Phonic Shed scheme. Children become familiar with the letter sounds using the phonics cards and we teach the phonemes in the order suggested in the Phonic Shed 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.

 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.
