English including reading schemes
Reading & reading schemes
We are very fortunate in Sudley Infants to have over 30 different reading schemes. All children will follow their own unique reading journey and will have an opportunity to read books with different genre from a variety of reading schemes. Here at Sudley we value the importance of reading for pleasure so we have a a huge amount of non reading scheme books that the children can choose from. We also use ‘Bug Club’ which is an online reading scheme which children can access at home via the Active Learn website. These books are very interactive and loved by children and parents.
Bug Club can be accessed on an iPad by downloading either of the following applications from the Apple App Store:
or just type in to Google ‘Active Learn on Ipad’ and it will give you instructions.
Listed below are some of the reading schemes used in school:
Oxford Reading Tree
Eye Witness Readers
Giggle and Grin
The Book Project
Through the Rainbow
One Two Three and Away
Read, Write Inc
Bangers & Mash
At Sudley Infant School we base our writing activities on a combination of the Hamilton Trust scheme and the needs of individual year groups.
We base our phonics teaching on the Letters and Sounds publication.
Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills. It aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.
Children in Year 1 complete a phonics assessment called the Phonic Screening Check. More information about this can be found in the assessment section of the website.
