At St. Anne’s R.C. Primary School we follow Letters and Sounds, a phonic resource. It is a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children. There are six phases, Phase 1 starting in Nursery up to Phase 6 in Year 2, although children work through each phase at their own pace. In school we use Phonics Play to support the children as part of their phonics session. Pupils in EYFS and KS1 are set for phonics, depending on the Phase they are working on and phonics teaching continues into KS2 until pupils are secure at Phase 5b, when they will then start working on spellings at the appropriate level.
We use a wide range of reading resources to teach reading, including Collins Big Cat, Oxford Reading Tree, Traditional Tales, Floppy’s Phonics, Rigby Star, Starquest, Fireflies, Infotrail and Snapdragons. We also use Accelerated Reader, once pupils have achieved white band. This involves pupils choosing their own reading book from the library at an appropriate level and taking a comprehension quiz after reading.
In English, we use a range of resources to support our teaching and learning. These include; quality picture books and novels, a range of non-fiction texts and poetry, Literacy Shed and Literacy and Language. For Spelling and Grammar we use the No Nonsense Spelling and Grammar teaching resources, supplemented by Rising Stars.
Our children love reading!
