Phonics and Reading
At Mayplace, children begin learning to read in phonics lessons, following the Letters and Sounds scheme. Additionally, books from Bug Club Phonics are used when children read 1:1 with an adult, or take reading books home. Upon completion of this scheme, children progress through different bands of books, the earlier bands of which are produced by Oxford Reading Tree, the later bands comprising a combination of fiction titles by a range of authors. Children in the Rainbow Room use the Read, Write Inc. books in their English lessons.
