Reading and Phonics
At St. Stephen's we teach reading using the Oxford Reading scheme and Phonics Bug. In guided reading we use the Big Cats scheme.
We teach daily phonics sessions based on the Letters and Sound scheme. Children will bring their reading book and record home every night. Regular reading and discussion about what they are reading is really important. Reading to your child and talking to them about stories and books is also extremely beneficial.
Please feel free to comment in their reading records as it is an ideal way of communicating with school.
