Phonics

At Rimon we strive to ensure that all children become successful, fluent readers by the end of KS1. We believe this is achieved through quality first discrete phonics teaching combined with a strong emphasis on developing a love of reading. All children must take a national phonics test at the end of Y1. Children who do not pass in Y1 repeat the test at the end of Y2. 

Children in Reception and Y1 have a daily phonics sessions using the programme Read Write Inc. Children who are retaking the phonics test will offer have supplementary phonics teaching. 

The school reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree but this is also supplemented with books from other schemes such as Songbirds and Collins Big Cat Phonics.
