Phonics and Reading Schemes

Phonics

At Bolton Primary School we use the Letters and Sounds phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills. It aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.

Reading Schemes

We use a range of high quality reading schemes including Songbirds and Oxford Reading Tree. Books are banded in levels and are selected to meet the needs of pupils.
