Phonics and Reading Teaching

At St George's children learn to read through a variety of strategies. We use phonics (the teaching of the sounds that letters make) as our main method. This is supported by regular reading with adults in school, reading at home, learning high frequency words (tricky words) and developing sight vocabulary. The Phonics scheme we use is the ReadWriteInc Phonics program. 


At St George's we do not follow just one scheme of books for reading. We use Oxford Reading Tree, Readwriteinc, Ginn and several other schemes with the intention that children are offered a range of texts to read in school and at home. This is supported by a very well stocked School Library.
