Pupils in the Foundation Stage will be learning to:
Describe main story settings, events and principal characters
Read, write and understand simple sentences
Use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read and write them accurately.
They also read some common irregular words.
Our approach to phonics at Bentley High Street Primary School is based around the Letters and Sounds scheme. In addition, we use a range of resources from other schemes. This enables children to learn the sounds of the English language so they become confident readers.
Children will be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
