Phonic and Reading schemes.
Tibberton Primary school follows a phonic scheme, (teaching of sounds and letters). This scheme uses the Letters and Sounds scheme supported by the ‘Jolly Phonics’ actions and pictures in Reception. This is a comprehensive scheme that covers the phonics children need to learn to promote success in reading and writing.
The school uses a variety of reading schemes to support children’s reading. Children learn to read in different ways so individual needs are supported by different types of books. These may include phonic based stories or books where children need to learn words by sight. It is important to provide children with a wide variety to become confident readers.
The staff hear children read on a regular basis. Children are more successful if this is followed up at home with parent hearing children read daily and phonics or spelling being practised when sent home. All children have a reading diary for parents and staff to comment in.
