Phonics in Year 3:
Update Note 27.04.22. This section outlines the phonics and reading schemes that we use in Year 3.
We deliver 'Essential Letters and Sounds' (from the start of the Summer Term 2022) to children that are working up to Phase 5.
Essential Letters and Sounds is a Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programme which has been validated by the Department of Education.
Reading - The reading scheme/books that we use are produced by Oxford University Press and are linked to the programme mentioned above.
Children are assigned physical books and eBooks from Oxford Owl weekly. www.oxfordowl.co.uk
Children have their own individual logins to enable them to access books that have been specifically assigned to them in correspondence with their phonics learning in school. The decodable books provide opportunities to practise the letters and sounds taught that week and/or revise previously taught sounds.
Below are some examples of the range of books available:
Little Blending Books Words Sparks Project X Phonics Hero Academy Hero Academy Non-fiction Alien Adventures Traditional Tales Story Sparks and inFact
Further details about our phonics policy and provision can be found on the English subject website page.
A reading book is also given to each child each week for breadth of reading. This is matched to the colour band of their Guided Reading book in class.
