Reading and Phonics
The importance of reading and phonics at St Vincent’s
Reading plays a vital role in the development and education of your child. At St Vincent’s we ensure that pupils have lots of opportunities to read in lots of different contexts. We continually strive to promote a love of reading.
In Key Stage One we deliver a consistent approach to phonics using a programme called Read, Write Inc. Every pupil in Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two ( where required) works through the programme to help them decode (sound out) words that they read. Reading is linked into understanding what they have read. Using small group work on a daily basis allows staff to pin point any individual who may need additional support in this area and will plan intervention activities if needed.
Pupils read through a set of book banded books. Each colour in the book band is a different level. We provide a diet and range of books at different levels within a book band. The pupils know which book band they are working at and recognise the book band that they are working towards.
Schools can prove excellence by gaining industry standard awards. View awards we have attained.
