Phonics & Reading
We believe that the teaching of phonics is fundamental to the development of early reading skills. At Oxhey First school phonics is taught in a systematic way. Our daily phonic sessions are based on the DfE Letters and Sounds Publication (2007) and the 2014 English National Curriculum requirements. We use a range of resources and multi sensory activities to promote speaking and listening skills, phonological awareness and oral blending.

We ensure that our reading schemes encourage children to apply the new phonological knowledge they have gained by providing them with decodable home reader reading books from schemes such as Big Cat Collins Phonics, Oxford University Press and Project X . Alongside these schemes we use Rigby Star and Oxford Reading Tree and a wide range of appropriately levelled real books to ensure children develop a great love of reading and have an opportunity to embed the application of key reading skills.
