Reading and Phonics

At Alexandra Infants’ School we follow the Government’s reading and phonics scheme, entitled Letters and Sounds.

To support this, in our Foundation classes; Nursery and Reception, we use the Jolly Phonics scheme when learning the initial sounds. This scheme is very interactive and uses songs, rhymes and music. The children also learn actions to enable them to remember the phonics sounds.

Throughout the school children will bring books home to read and have guided reading sessions in school. Schemes used for this include; Sails, Rigby Rockets, Oxford Reading Tree, Songbirds, Bug Club and Bug Club Phonics.

Children each have log-in details to access the Bug Club at home. You can join your child in reading books and playing phonics games online. Please make sure your child brings their reading folder to school every day.
