Phonics and Early Reading

Terrington Primary School is passionate about teaching all our children to read competently.

In phonics we use the government recommended letters and sounds program to enable your child to decode fluently.  We use a variety of reading schemes throughout KS1 that are carefully matched to a childs phonics ability, these include Bug Club and Oxford Reading Tree.  All our children enjoy weekly group guided reading sessions.

Learning to read is a journey that progresses throughout their primary school years and we continue to provide opportunities to develop a love of reading through a range of reading materials that link with the curriculumm and your childs interests. We offer many opportunities to celebrate our childrens reading with choral speaking and World Book Day to name a few.

Our focus on understanding and enjoying texts ensures children leave our school and confident readers who choose to engage in books.
