Reading in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Key Stage 1 (KS1) is taught initially using a systematic, synthetic phonic approach. Phonics is taught daily as a discrete lesson and we use 'Letters and Sounds' as a core scheme to teach synthetic phonics, which is multi-sensory, exciting and engaging. During EYFS and KS1, children develop their phonic knowledge and skills and apply these in both reading and spelling.
As developing readers, children are encouraged to use a wider range of strategies to aid decoding of text and to enhance their understanding of material across a range of genres. The reading scheme used for KS1 includes a variety of texts which are banded at an appropriate level.
'Phonics Play' is a website packed with interactive phonics games and many different resources to help your child to use their phonics skills in reading. You can access this via the link, below.
