Nether Green Infant School

Reading and Phonics 

The teaching of English is one that is designed to instil in children a love of speaking and

listening, reading, and writing that will last them a lifetime. It is paramount for us at Nether

Green Infant School that our children are given the key skills in English to enable them to

access material in all curriculum areas and provide them with a foundation for their learning

throughout their school journey. To achieve this, we pride ourselves on making English

interesting and exciting, engaging the pupils with the joy and wonder of books and piquing

their imagination and creativity.


We use a scheme called Read Write Inc to support our teaching in Phonics. 

Phonics and Early Reading - Hoyland Springwood Primary School


Our reading books link into our phonics scheme. The children progress through a range of

colour banded books which match the phonics stage they are working at. 

Books are sent home for children to practise and consolidate what they have been taught in

We enjoy listening to stories in our weekly 'Favourite book' assemblies, written by our 'Author of the half term'. We have loved listening to stories written by Sue Hendra.

Have you read any of her books?
