At Jubilee Academy we are committed to encouraging children to read for fun. Reading helps children with their writing, and also with all of their other subjects, so please support us by reading with your child at home.

In Foundation Stage and KS1 children are taught using Jolly Phonics and Phonics Play, which helps them to learn how to read and write their letters and sounds. Children are taught to read using a range of phonetically decodable books. Once children’s phonic knowledge is secure they choose from a range of texts which are book banded according to the level of difficulty. Lexia is used as an additional intervention.

Whole class reading is used to build upon this basis and encourage confident and fluent reading. Reading texts are linked to topics where possible, which also aids comprehension work and understanding of reading materials.
