We make it our priority to ensure that every child learns to read by the end of Key Stage 1. We aim to create fluent readers who monitor and self-correct, understand what they read and read for enjoyment and pleasure.

We are committed to help children find enjoyment in reading and to appreciate how books can offer a window to other worlds, meet amazing characters and learn about the world they live in. We choose books with important and diverse themes that help to build on their cultural capital and knowledge.

Through our carefully created Reading Spine and whole class shared reading lessons, we ensure that children leave South Wilford having been exposed to a wide range of world-class literature. Our children leave school prepared for whatever future lies ahead of them.

How we teach Early Reading

Phonics
High quality phonics is taught daily from EYFS to Year 2. We have a consistent Structured Synthetic Phonics Programme (Rocket Phonics) across school and we are confident that our approach will ensure success for all, particularly, the lowest 20% of pupils.

Early Phonics interventions are put in place throughout EYFS and KS1 with the aim of children "keeping up" rather than "catching up". Phonics interventions also occur in KS2 for those children who still need phonics support.

Our Reading books are fully phonetically decodable up to orange book band to allow children to apply their phonic knowledge and practise their blending skills.

Children only read books containing sounds that they know
