Phonics Curriculum and Reading
At Iveson we know and understand the importance of providing our children with the foundations to becoming a successful and confident reader. We begin the teaching of these skills in our daily phonic lessons which we start in Nursery and continue to Year 2 and for some children in years 3 and 4.
At school we use the ‘Letters and Sounds’ phonic programme and this is enhanced with the ‘Jolly Phonics’ programme in the Early Years.
The teaching of phonics is developed through each phase of the programme and taught using the revisit – teach – practise – apply Mrs Collinson is our Literacy Leader in school, if you wish to find out more information please contact school.

Reading in KS1
We develop reading using the Floppys’ Phonics Reading Scheme, Biff , Chip and Kipper Stories and the In-Fact non-fiction books all by Oxford Reading Tree. These books are taken home by the children and changed when read. The Oxford Reading Tree Scheme books are staged at different levels and provide children with the opportunity to apply their phonic knowledge and increase their high frequency word recognition. Other books/schemes are also used to supplement the range and depth of our children’s reading experiences. We deliver daily whole class guided reading sessions using a variety of texts and develop the skills of retrieval and inference.
