Reading in School

Update 7.3.22:- This section outlines the phonics and reading schemes that we use in Year Four. We are currently in the process of taking part in 'Essential Letters + Sounds' training. This is a government approved synthetic phonics programme that has its own linked reading scheme that we are working towards introducing at St Saviours this academic year. We will use this ELS Scheme in place of our current Letters and Sounds work we use for our phonics interventions in class.


Our home and guided reading books are a mixture of schemes, including: Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Rocket, Big Cat and Planet X. This is the colour band system we follow:
Pink
Red
Yellow
Blue
Green
Orange
Turquoise
Purple
Gold
White
Brown
Lime
Grey
Dark Blue
Dark Red

Please ensure you are hearing your child read three times a week and recording this in their reading diary. 

If you have any questions regarding your child's reading book please make a note of this in their yellow reading record book.
