Reading & Phonics

As you will be aware at Freehold, we understand how important it is that children are able to read confidently and take pleasure from reading a variety of books. We have a fantastic library which is filled with exciting books that the children are able to take home.

All children from Nursery to Year 2 have phonics lessons following the Letters and sounds guidance. Children take part in daily, discreet sessions where the 4 part lesson is completely interactive. They learn through revisiting, learning, practising and applying what they know, using their phonics skills.

Staff plan interactive sessions using a range or resources such as phonics bug and phonics play.

Children are assessed regularly and interventions are set up for any children needing extra support to acheive their potential.
