At Linton-on-Ouse Primary School and Nursery, we believe that developing good reading and spelling skills is rooted in high quality teaching of phonics; phonics is at the core of almost all children’s ability to read fluently. All pupils in Early Years Foundation Stage; in Key Stage One; and in Lower Key Stage Two receive daily phonics teaching. We follow the ‘Phonics International’ sequence of learning which is recommended by the English Hubs.
We endeavour to develop enthusiastic readers at a young age; we offer the pupils books that are decodable - the children have already been taught the phonemes that they need to be able to read the book. This encourages confidence as it allows the children to begin to access books quickly. Where pupils make less than expected progress, we help them to catch up quickly through additional support sessions.
