Phonics / Early Reading

Teaching of Reading in Year R & 1


The main focus in Year R and 1 is the teaching and learning of phonics so that children become fluent readers by the end of Year 1. We use  Bug Club, which is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme to teach Phonics. It is one of the DfE's 2021 approved Phonics teaching programmes and includes fully decodable books which match the lessons. Please see documents below for more details of the programme.
