Phonics

How we teach pupils to read

At Rampton Primary School, we use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics from Foundation Stage upwards. Once our children have completed the final phase of Letters and Sounds, and their phonics knowledge is secure, SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) lessons will be taught where the children will be given a range of reading and writing activities related to SPAG. 

 

Reading books are organised into book banded colour groups. The book band boxes contain a wide range of books including Oxford Reading Tree, Collins Big Cats and others to supplement the range of choice. Pupils can select any book from their band colour to read at home and in school. Staff regularly assess pupils’ reading through reading comprehension activities, guided reading sessions, reading across the curriculum and individual reading times. Progress through the bands is carefully monitored to ensure that pupils are challenged appropriately.
