Phonics and Reading


Woodfield School teaches phonics through a daily letters and sounds programme.

During the induction sessions and planned curriculum meetings, staff at school will share with you our approach to the teaching of phonics.

We use a variety of reading schemes across the school, including Rigby Star and Bug Club, to teach new skills and consolidate learning. Reading is taught individually and as part of guided/group reading sessions.

At the end of Year One, your child's phonic knowledge will be assessed using a statutory assessment known as the Phonics Screening Check. The result of this screening check will be shared with parents and carers in July.


Phonics Play is a website that we use in school for fun, interactive games and resources.
