At Shardlow we work extremely hard to ensure our teaching and learning in Phonics is consistent, engaging and progressive. Based on the principles of Read Write Inc., our daily lessons ensure that the children develop the skills they need to be able to read with fluency, whilst developing a love of reading.
The children in Reception start their Phonics journey as soon as they start school and continue their learning into Year 1. Lessons are taught in small, targeted groups and are packed full of reading and writing opportunities! Teachers are continually assessing the children's knowledge and timely interventions can take place according to their needs.

Please note that teachers continually assess children’s reading in school and use this information to determine when each child is ready to move on in their reading.
