Phonic and Reading schemes

Support For Parents

In Key Stage 1 and lower Key Stage 2 the Ruth Miskin phonics and Reading scheme is used. It is a carefully constructed teaching programme, alongside carefully matched resources and books, providing a lively, structured, and above all, rigorous approach to the teaching of phonics – and literacy as a whole.

Phonics And Reading At St Hugh

To teach phonics, we use Read Write Inc. We place a strong focus on the teaching of the basic skills necessary for all of our children to be confident and independent learners but wherever possible we also make cross curricular links with other subjects and topics in order that teaching and learning is relevant and meaningful.

In Key Stage 2 pupils progress to a combination of Oxford Reading Tree. In addition, pupils are encouraged to also supplement their independent reading with a variety of genres. Pupils are rewarded for their commitment to reading and expanding their vocabulary throughout the school.
