Reading Programme (KS1)
Daily Supported Reading is a programme that ensures that through enriched texts, children in KS1 learn to read, to respond to, and engage with new ideas and information every day.
Children, led by a trained adult, read in small homogenous groups, that are matched to their independent reading levels.
Adults support independent engagement with, and independent enjoyment of, a range of story books. Adults receive ongoing weekly professional development training across the year. They also receive regular coaching support while working with their reading groups each day.
Daily Supported Reading is implemented in addition to a school’s synthetic phonics programme.
Phonics Programme (KS1)
Read Write Inc. Phonics is a synthetic phonics programme that help and support pupils in EYFS, KS1 and targeted KS2 pupils to read and write effectively and quickly. Children attend daily 45 minutes lessons with a trained adult. Adults receive ongoing weekly professional development training across the year. They also receive regular coaching support while working with their reading groups each day.
Pupils also take home weekly phonics books that are not only matched their reading level, but have been taught to them and read to them, as well as have been practiced in class.
Pupils learn to:
- Decode letter-sound correspondences quickly and effortlessly, using their phonic knowledge and skills
- Read common exception words on sight · Understand what they read
- Read aloud with fluency and expression
- Write confidently, with a strong focus on vocabulary and grammar
- Spell quickly and easily by segmenting the sounds in words
