How do we teach children to read?
In the Early Years and Key Stage 1, the children are taught to read primarily through daily, discrete phonics sessions following the ‘Phonics Shed’ programme.

The Phonics Shed programme is narrative based, with lots of fun and engaging characters, songs and stories to help develop a love of reading and writing. It is split into four chapters and is mostly used from ages 3 to 7.



What is phonics?

Phonics is a method of learning to read. It teaches the children to decode words by recognising the letters and the sounds they make, and then blending these sounds together to read the words.
