Phonics and Reading

At Earsham CEVA Primary School, we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' guidance to teach Phonics and this is supplemented with a variety of resources including 'Read, Write, Inc' materials.




We teach reading using a range of reading materials including 'Oxford Reading Tree', 'Read, Write Inc' and other texts that are accurately pitched to the child's phonic ability. We are passionate about teaching reading using a range of approaches including regular guided reading sessions, 1:1 reading, class reading and comprehension activities as well as computer programmes such as Lexia where appropriate.


We have a well-stocked library that also helps pupils to develop a love of reading.


The school works closely with Bungay Library and we have hosted regular reading events for parents in Reception and Year 1. This project has been funded by Bungay Lions.
