Reading Scheme & Phonics

At Bedelsford School we understand and value each of our individual student’s need and abilities.

For this reason, we utilise a range of reading schemes to enable our learners to develop at a stage and pace appropriate to every individual.

Our reading schemes include:

  • Oxford Reading Tree – Floppy Phonics
  • Oxford Reading Tree – Magic key
  • Origins -Project X
  • Collins Big Cat
  • Story Sparks
  • Books Beyond Words

As well as these resources we use a range of Bag Books and sensory stories to enhance every students’ English learning.

Phonics is taught using the DfE Letters and Sounds programme and Jolly Phonics. We support teaching through tactile resources where relevant.

Resources and programmes are continually reviewed by the Literacy coordinator to ensure that Bedelsford School students have the best possible learning resources and provision.

 

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
