Reading & Phonics

How we approach the teaching of reading & phonics at Cambois Primary

We use Read Write Inc. Phonics, which provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It aims to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.
The children are all grouped by ability, we believe that 'stage, not age' is vital. They are re-assessed every 6-8 weeks.

Our reading schemes are with the Oxford Reading Tree and Nelson PM Reading.  Children have  guided reading session and opportunities to read daily. Guided reading sessions are set by ability. Children are also heard reading individually in school and at home linked by a home-school reading diary.
