Phonics and Reading Schemes
Our aim at Ormesby Primary School is that all children have a love and enjoyment of reading. We develop their reading skills by encouraging a language rich environment, surrounded by familiar books and by teaching a daily phonics lesson following the ‘Read Write Inc’ phonics scheme.
In July 2018, 80% of our Year 1 children successfully passed the national phonics assessment. By the end of Year 2, 100% of our Year 2 children had also reached the expected standard in Phonics.
In Key Stage 1 and lower Key Stage 2 we use the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme, augmented by the Tree Tops reading scheme (Oxford University Press).
