Phonics in our School


At Broadhempston Primary School we follow Letters and Sounds using Phonics play resources. We believe that this approach gives children a fantastic start and allows us to ensure all the children are reading appropriate books for their ability.  


As well as our Letters and Sounds lesson we have daily literacy lessons. We follow sequences using books to help hook the children and as an impact see children enjoying their writing time. 


Current reading schemes used in school are:


  • Oxford Reading Tree,
  • Usborne
  • Collins
  • Songbirds
  • Project X
  • Rigby Star
  • Phonics Bug


There is an extensive range of free reading material available for all children in each classroom.
