Phonics is the main way that reading is taught at St Mary's in Foundation Stage and KS1.

'Jolly Phonics' and 'Letters and Sounds' resources are used to provide a structured phonics program.


Our reading scheme is the Oxford Reading tree.


We encourage reading to widely beyond the reading scheme and as soon as the class teacher believes it is appropriate, pupils are moved off the reading scheme and given access to a range of fiction and non fiction books.

We strongly encourage reading at home, so please find below recommended reading books listed by year groups.
