English: Reading and Phonics
Across our school, children Our reading scheme is called SfA (Success for All). The aim of SfA is to create fluent and confident readers who are able to clarify and question a range of texts.
In Reception, children learn Phonics and early reading skills through the SfA programme KinderRoots. Children in years 1-6 have a 90 minute literacy lesson four times per week. This is because we believe literacy is the key to all learning for our children and 90 minutes allows for extensive practice of fluency and analytical skills, as well as providing time for translating children’s experience of different reading genres into effective writing.
