Reading and phonics
At Birchanger, children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are taught phonics using ‘letters and sounds’.
We have an extensive library and our reading books for early readers follow a colour coded scheme to ensure that children are reading books at a level appropriate to their reading development. We also encourage children to read, share and listen to a wide range of ‘real books’ to foster a love of reading from an early age.
Any queries relating to our curriculum or to find out more about the curriculum the school is following please contact Mrs Berry, Head Teacher
