Phonics and reading

At Hemsby Primary School we follow the Letters and Sounds guidance for the teaching of phonics. The children work in their class groupings, using a range of resources and supplementary ICT resources. Children have access to a wide range of reading material.

In Year 2, Read, Write, Inc. Spelling is used to support reading and spelling different graphemes. Read, Write, Inc. Spelling is taught across all of KS2.

Our core reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree which includes fiction, poetry and non-fiction books. Once the children reach a certain level of attainment they move on to the ‘Accelerated Reading’ programme which allows them to take reading comprehension tests online, earn rewards etc.

Accelerated Reading allows children on the higher stages of the Oxford Reading Tree to complete comprehension quizzes based on what they have read.

The school has adopted the Pie Corbett Reading Spine to complement the Talk 4 Writing philosophy we follow in school.
