Phonics and Reading
In Reception and Key Stage 1, phonics is taught using the Letters and Sounds Programme. Phonics play and Jolly Phonics actions are used to support and enhance the teaching of phonics.
When learning to read, children at Rusthall St Paul's CE Primary School work through a series of colour banded books. Within each colour band there is a wide range of reading schemes and both fiction and non-fiction books are included. Children choose their own reading books to help foster a love of reading.
