Spelling and Phonics Schemes

As a school we follow the Read, Write, Inc program for phonics and spelling. The teachers plan and prepare lessons using ‘Read, Write, Inc’. All the children are placed and work in different spelling or phonic groups. If, as a parent, you have any questions about phonics or spelling please speak to the class teacher.

Reading Books

Reading books in school are organised into book bands. Your child will be assessed by the class teacher and assigned a book band colour to choose their books from. As your child progresses they will be moved along the bands and you will be informed of the changes in their reading records. The books in each of these boxes have been banded to fit your child’s level, as well as offer a challenge for them to move to the next level. The books come from a range of different schemes so that your child has the opportunity to read lots of different types of books.


Please ensure your child brings his or her reading book and record to school every day.
