Reading and Spelling


All books in school are banded according to levels. We use a variety of schemes including the Oxford Reading Tree, Phonics Bug and Collins Big Cat.


Phonics and Spelling

In the Foundation Stage (Reception) and Key Stage 1 we use the DfE Letters and Sounds and Phonics Bug to deliver our phonics lessons. In Key Stage 2, we continue to use DfE Letters and Sounds as necessary. We also use DfE Support for Spelling and the “No Nonsense Spelling” scheme.
