Phonics & Reading

We have a rich literary environment at Oxbridge Lane with the provision of quality reading material covering fiction, non-fiction, poetry and reference books. These books can be found in each classroom, and all classes have access to our library resources.

These books are supported by our key reading schemes, Oxford Reading Tree, Floppy’s Phonics, Rigby Star and Reading Eggs along with several others to complement these main schemes. In early years and beyond, we teach children to read using systematic, synthetic phonics (Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics) as well as some whole and key word recognition. Reading Scheme books are colour banded according to the level of difficulty.
