Phonics & Reading Scheme

EYFS/Key Stage 1

Phonics lessons take place daily for a minimum of 20 minutes across EYFS and Key Stage 1. We follow the Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics scheme and we follow the structure of ‘Review, Teach, Practise and Apply to ensure that children are consolidating phonic knowledge and skills over time and that they are able to apply them in context. Consequently, wherever possible, links between phonics knowledge and understanding are made to learning in both Reading and Writing. These lessons proceed at pace and incorporate a wide range of practical and interactive activities to engage the children.

Children are taught in small groups between 5 and 20 children. They are grouped according to their phonic knowledge which is assessed by the class teacher. As children progress at different rates, these groups are changed regularly.

Our core reading scheme in Key Stage 1 is Rising Star Reading Rockets with Oxford reading Tree moving into Year 2.  These are supplemented by various other schemes which enrich our reading provision and provide a varied ‘literary diet’ for our pupils.

Key Stage 2

Through independent reading, shared reading in literacy lessons and cross-curricular sessions, guided reading groups and reading for pleasure, reading in Key Stage 2 develops and extends the skills acquired in Key Stage 1.

Children explore a wide variety of genre, both fiction and non-fiction which allows them to access, input ideas and understand what they are reading. They are given opportunities to speculate on the tone and purpose of texts they explore as well as consider both the texts’ themes and audience.

We have a wide range of high-quality texts which both stretch and excite our pupils. Specific books have been purchased to interest both boys and girls. We also have a selection of high interest, low ability readers materials.

At Inmans we are keen to promote reading throughout the school.

We have so many lovely areas for our pupils to enjoy reading, a lovely spacious Library with chairs and beanbags to relax and our newly renovated Reading Bus which pupils can use throughout the day including break time.

Here, at Inmans Primary School we recognise the importance of Diversity, inclusion, and tolerance topics.  We feel books can prove to be an invaluable aid in helping to teach children about different cultures and experiences and understanding a character’s point of view. We feel children need to learn about all aspects of diversity and feel empowered to discuss what makes all of us unique, valued and respected in terms of culture, race, ethnicity, gender, education, disability, identity, nationality, religion, sexuality, neurodiversity, social background, and beliefs. 

We have ensured a list of books on the topic of diversity, which aims to provide teachers with suitable texts to help generate cross-curricular discussion, empathise with diverse characters, and provide a stimulus for written work. Authors include Kwame Alexander, Sihle Nontshokweni, Michael Rosen, Polly Ho-Yen, Shaun Tan, Anne Frank, and Paul Harfleet.  These books are shared with our children in daily read sessions, which help promote our aims and values that our pupils at Inmans have a good understanding of the diverse world we live in.
