There has been a huge shift in the teaching of reading over recent years. This is having a enormous impact and helping many children to read and spell effectively. Phonics is recommended as the first reading strategy that children should be taught. At Felmore Primary School, phonics runs alongside other teaching methods to help children develop vital reading skills and to give them a love of reading and the skills to write and spell skillfully.
At Felmore Primary School, reading and phonics are taught in accordance with the National Curriculum (2014) and Letters and Sounds. We use the Pearsons Phonics scheme Bug Club to help us to do this effectively.
All staff at the school have received extensive training and have a shared understanding of how to teach children to read and write and their journey begins in the Early Years Foundation Stage where phonics is introduced using the scheme above. Their journey continues in Key Stage 1 and beyond.
