Phonics and reading in Key Stage 1


At Alston lane we use 'Letters and Sounds' as our phonics scheme across the infant classes. This system of synthetic phonics enables children to blend sounds which helps with early reading and writing.

Our reading schemes in Key Stage 1 include:

  • Rigby Star
  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Floppy's Phonics
