From January 2022, we follow the recently DfE validated Reading Planet Rocket Phonics Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programme. The steady pace and progression of the programme aims to deeply embed knowledge and skills from the start of Foundation Stage 2. Its balanced approach focuses equally on blending sounds for reading and segmenting words for writing and spelling.
Throughout this story-based programme, pupils will be able to immerse themselves in a wide range of captivating, illustrated stories and rich, fully decodable fiction and non-fiction to embed their phonics in context and ignite a love of reading. Pupils will also have access to e-Books which may be set as reading homework.
