Reading and Phonics

At The Tyrrells Primary School we follow the requirements and structure of the Statutory Early Years Foundation Studies Framework and the National Curriculum when teaching phonics. We use a variety of documents to support the content of our teaching, such as Letters and Sounds, Action Words and some resources from Jolly Phonics.


When children are identified as needing some extra support, we use the Dancing Bears phonics programme as an intensive intervention.


We use the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme within Early Years and Key Stage 1.
