KS1 Phonics and Reading

Our KS1 pupils make excellent use of the Bug Club reading scheme and the Letters and Sounds phonics programme:

  • 'Bug Club' Reading SchemeBug Club is a whole-school reading programme that joins books with an online reading world to teach today’s children to read. Combining rigorous pedagogy with fantastic design, kid-cred characters and cutting edge technology, Bug Club is a fresh and modern take on traditional reading programmes that your children will really love.
  • 'Letters and Sounds' Phonics: This programme aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.
