Approach to phonics and reading schemes
Phonics is taught to all pupils, and may continue into Key Stage 2 where appropriate. We use Pearson's Phonics scheme includes a range of oral, written and interactive elements daily.
Our reading scheme is Pearsons, which runs throughout school. The reading scheme is supplemented by a wide range of other reading materials, both fiction and non-fiction. All children have the opportunity to read digital books through the Active Learn and Phonics Bug packages.
The reading scheme is organised into colour bands through which children progress at their own speed. School staff will move children through the bands when both their decoding and comprehension skills show they are ready.
We will be celebrating 'World Book Day' in good old, Stanley St Andrew's style. Children are welcome to come in costume, bring in their much-loved books and we will be buddy reading throughout the whole school.
