Parent Page for Phonics and Reading

Reading is the cornerstone of learning. Teaching children the skills of reading and developing a deep love of of books is at the heart of what we do in our school. We use the Ruth Miskin phonics scheme to ensure that children know letter sounds, digraphs and trigraphs, as well as 'tricky words' so that they have the skills that they need to access and enjoy a range of age appropriate texts. Below is a selection of videos to help you support your child at home with phonics and reading. Feel free to use them to find out how we teach phonics and reading and enjoy watching them with your child too!
