Phonics in EYFS and Key Stage One

At St John with St Mark, in line with statutory requirements, we are preparing for an exciting transition with regard to our phonics teaching. Staff are currently receiving training on Little Wandle Letters and Sounds which is a validated phonics scheme for primary schools. The scheme is amazing and we are very excited to get started! The scheme includes all resources and materials to support parents at home. More information to follow soon! Our phonics teaching, using Letters and Sounds will continue in the meantime.

We have a rigorous home reading system using a combination of different reading schemes to ensure breadth of reading experience.   We currently use Big Cats, Rigby Star and Lighthouse reading schemes.  Children's books are changed frequently and awards are given out for regular readers.
