KS1 Reading Schemes and Phonics

At Upper Beeding Primary School we help your child to get ready for learning to read and write using phonics by developing their understanding that spoken words are made up of different sounds. Your child will take part in a high-quality phonics session every day. These sessions are active and fun-filled with an emphasis on teaching the skills your child will need for reading and writing. The programme that we use at Upper Beeding Primary to help us to plan and teach high quality phonics sessions is called Letters and Sounds.  This is a Government recommended scheme.
We have adopted the Oxford Reading Tree as our reading scheme which includes the Biff and Chip stories, poetry, songbird and non-fiction books.
