The Teaching of Phonics and Reading

At Shaw-cum-Donnington we are committed to teaching all children to be fluent and confident readers.  

The teaching of synthetic phonics begins in Reception.  Phonics is taught daily until the children are fluent readers.  We follow the Supersonic Phonic Friends programme.

Children have 1:1 reading and whole class reading to develop their reading skills and comprehension.  Each class has a book corner and there is a school library that children can borrow books from.  

Please see below our presentation for parents about the teaching and learning of phonics and reading.  

The Children's Book Awards
The school takes part in the Children's Book Awards.  Each term some of the latest books are available for the children to read and review.  All of their votes contribute to the annual awards and overall book winners.
