Reading and Phonics Schemes

Phonics at Winnersh Primary School


At Winnersh, we want every child to be a successful, fluent reader and writer by the end of Key Stage One. We believe that this is achievable through a combination of strong, high quality, discrete phonics teaching combined with regular, daily opportunities for developing reading skills. The teaching of phonics is a key strategy that is used to help our children to read, write and spell.  We want to ensure that children are engaged and active during phonics lessons and so use a variety of games and activities to keep the learning fun.


Phonics teaching and learning doesn’t stop after phonics lessons, but is embedded in all areas of the curriculum and carries on throughout the day.  Children are required to use their phonics skills when reading and writing in any subject.
