For Parents and Carers
At St Paul's Primary School, we believe that teaching children to read is the most important gift we can give them.Phonics is one of the many skills needed to become a reader and writer. We aim to give pupils the best possible start on their reading/writing journey by teaching them the essential skills and knowledge to decode and encode words independently from the outset. During the first stage of their reading and writing journey pupils will use phonics as their first strategy to read and spell unknown words until it is embedded with automaticity. Alongside phonics we also enjoy reading sessions which encourage fluency, prosody and comprehension skills which provide the foundations needed to flourish on their reading journey. We believe that the phonics and early reading programme allows children to develop a love of reading and literature whilst it supports their language development and understanding of the world around them.
