Phonic and Reading Schemes used in Key Stage 1
Highfield Primary school’s phonic teaching follows the ‘Letters and Sounds’ document published by the DfE in 2007. Alongside ‘Letters and sounds’ teachers use ‘Jolly phonics’ to help children with the introduction of sounds. Each child in the Foundation Stage and KS1 receives 25 minutes of direct phonic teaching each day. Childrens' reading books will match their current phonic knowledge. All of the reading scheme books have been colour banded.
