St. Botolph’s CE Academy

Phonics and Early Reading



At St Botolph's we believe in the importance of building a love of reading from an early age. The teaching of reading begins as soon as the children join us. High quality phonics is taught using a systematic scheme, giving children positive opportunities to enjoy success in reading through sharing exciting texts.

It is our aim for children to teach the skills of reading so that they can become fluent, confident and passionate livelong readers.


Our daily phonics lessons are taught from Reception Class to Year 2. The scheme we use is Read, Write Inc. Read, Write Inc is a phonics scheme that creates fluent, readers, confident speakers and willing writers. Fun and engaging lessons are full of partner work, role-play and drama, integrating phonics with comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary and handwriting.
