Reading schemes

We place a large emphasis on the teaching of reading in our school.

In Reception and Year 1 our core reading scheme is "Collins Big Cat".  This is a fully decodable sheme which links in with our Phonics Scheme (Little Wandle Letters and Sounds). 

From Year 2, we currently use Oxford Reading Tree as our core scheme.


To enable our children to experience texts which are not fully decodable, we complement the core schemes with a wide variety of published schemes:

* Oxford Reading Tree (including Project X)

* All Aboard

* Project X

* Rigby Star

* Investigate (Scholastic)


The children also read and experience many books through daily classroom activities and time in the school library.
