Reading Information and books to enjoy
TEACHING YOUR CHILD TO READ AT PARK VIEW PRIMARY
Effective teaching, learning and assessment of phonics is paramount in our Early Years and Key Stage one to ensure children have the foundations to become fluent readers.
-We have recently introduced a new systematic synthetic phonics programme called Essential Letters and Sounds (ELS). This programme provides consistency in lesson structure and resources through Reception to Year 2. Each is lesson is fast paced, interactive and ensures progress.
-We understand the importance of children reading aloud books that are ‘consistent with their developing phonics knowledge’ (NC2014) and all our Early Readers at Park View have a decodable text which is banded by the ELS progression book list. This follows the order of when the GPCs are introduced in ELS.
