Home-School Readers


We have a home-school reading system which requests that children read a book at the appropriate level for them. All of the reading books on offer in EYFS and Key Stage 1 will connect closely to the phonics knowledge children are taught when they are learning to read. In Reception and Key Stage 1, children follow The Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Collins Big Cat and Dandelion Readers Book schemes, giving them a thorough grounding in the fundamentals. Moving up into Key Stage Two, children move through the Oxford Reading Tree and Collins Big Cat Schemes.
