Literacy Curriculum

 Reading and Phonics

 

Children in key stage one and two participate in a half an hour guided reading session everyday. They also have a daily phonics session in KS1 and a spelling, punctuation and grammar session in KS2.

 

We have a range of books for the children to read including books from a reading scheme and 'real books' by well known authors. All these books have been organised into Book Bands. This allows us to categorise books into levels which then helps to track your child's progress in reading.

 

Children are encouraged to take home books that have also been organised into the Book Bands. They can change their reading books as often as they like.

Book Band levels: 

    Pink

    Red

    Yellow

    Blue

    Green

    Orange

    Turquoise

    Purple

    Gold

    White

    Lime

For more information see:https://www.readingchest.co.uk/book-bands 

 

Beyond these levels we have organised the books into age appropriate books. These are also colour banded:

    Red

    Blue

    Yellow

    Green

Within phonics the children in EYFS and KS1 are taught from the Letters and Sounds scheme of work. If children are working beyond these levels they will be taught from the Support for Spelling document
