Reading & Phonics
The teaching of phonics begins in Red Rabbits and continues for as long as each child needs. We use the Letters and Sounds scheme as well as Jolly Phonics.
At South Malling we aim for every child to develop a love of reading. This begins with the teaching of phonics in our reception class where we use the Letters and Sounds scheme as well as Jolly Phonics to engage the children in a rich variety of kinaesthetic and musical activities. The school uses a wide range of books in the teaching of reading that are banded to support growing reading ability; daily guided reading sessions in each year allow us to support each child’s progress.
