Phonics and Reading (INFANTs)

At Polehampton we want to ensure that every single child in our school gets the very best support in becoming confident speakers, fluent readers and willing writers. We use a reading scheme called Collin's Big Cat. These are written by some of the most popular children's authors. They are beautiful, individual looking books with brilliant stories and a wide range of interesting and unusual non-fiction.  
Across the school we use the synthetic phonics programme Read Write Inc as developed by Ruth Miskin. The programme enables children to develop decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) skills and also has some excellent ditties to support with handwriting and letter formation.
