Reading and Phonics
Our aim is for all children to develop a lifelong love and enjoyment of books and stories. We believe that reading is a fundamental skill and empowers children to become confident and engaged in all areas of learning. At Yealmpton Primary School children have opportunities to take part in guided and independent reading as well as joint reading sessions with their peers and ‘reading buddies’.
The children are encouraged to read at home, for enjoyment and information, developing skills to become critical and independent readers who value and respect books.
We teach early reading using a synthetic phonic program (Read Write Inc.) that provides a systematic approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling.
