Reading & Phonics

At Grassington CE Primary School we mainly use the Oxford Reading Tree as our reading scheme from Class 1 onwards supplemented by a wide range of other books to enrich and excite our young readers.

Oxford Reading Tree is the UK's number one reading programme which helps to give children the very best start. With systematic phonics at its heart, Oxford Reading Tree's well-loved characters, breadth and unrivalled support make this a scheme which we feel really helps us instill a love of reading from the very start of a child's school life. Further information on the Oxford Reading Tree can be found here.
Phonics is taught everyday using the Read, Write Inc sounds and graphemes and with some use of Jolly Phonics.
