Our school uses a range of texts to support the teaching of reading.  For early readers, we use a phonic-based scheme which is closely linked to the Unlocking Letters and Sounds Programme.  As the children become more confident readers, they progress through our ‘colour’ books, according to their reading development. These texts include those from the ‘Rigby Star’ scheme.  When we feel they have achieved a good level of decoding and comprehension skills, children become’ free readers’ and select from a wide range of age-appropriate books.
