Phonics and Reading
Pupils from Year R upwards use the Letters and Sounds phonics. Generally speaking pupils in Year R do phases 1-4, Year 1 phases 3-5 and Year 2 phases 5-6.
This should only be considered a guide as it is dependent on each pupil individually.
In Years R-3 (dependent on the individual child) pupils read books with coloured book bands.
As they develop and progress as readers Year 2 pupils will start to read their own books and books from school reading areas/ library.
