At Oulton First School we use the DFE Letters and Sounds programme to teach phonics in a systematic and engaging way. Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive daily phonics sessions.
As each child develops their reading skills they will progress through our book banded reading scheme. All children are provided with a reading book matched to their reading level and we encourage progression through each band. We recognise that reading progress is most successful when supported at home with regular reading and ask parents to read with their child on a daily basis.
Pupils in KS1 and KS2 also engage is daily guided reading sessions to develop both their reading and comprehension skills. Pupils are challenged by reading a book which is a band higher than their home reading book.
A phonic Information session is provided for parents in the autumn term to develop understanding of the teaching of phonics and how parents can support children at home.
