Phonics and Reading

 

Reading Schemes

Across school we use several reading schemes, we aim to provide opportunities for children to read a rich and varied content which in turn will develop enthusiastic and confident readers.

The schemes we use include Oxford, Project X, Collins, Bug Club, Read Write Inc. and Rapid Phonics. 

Phonics

Phonics is the understanding of how letters combine to make sounds.  There are 26 letter sounds, but more than 40 speech sounds, including diagraphs e.g 'ch' and trigraphs e.g 'igh'.

At Coquet Park we use a combination of different phonics schemes including Letters and Sounds, Jolly Phonics and Read Write Inc.

Below are some useful links to assist in developing your child's phonic knowledge.
