Phonics and Reading
At Eccleston, we use the Letters and Sounds publication to teach phonics and early reading. Phonics is taught every morning except Friday from 9.05 - 9.30am.
Our main Reading Scheme for Key Stage 1 is the Oxford Reading Tree; however, we also use other resouces such as Project X, Rigby Stars and Collins Big Cat.
Books used to support phonics learning are always matched to the sounds the children have been taught.
