Phonics & Reading
At Reynolds Academy we teach phonics using a scheme called THRASS. We also draw on a programme called Letters and Sounds.
We base our planning on thorough assessments of what each child has achieved.
Our pupils have the opportunity to read a wide range of texts. Their individual and guided reading books are from a range of schemes: Alpablocks, Phonics Bugs, Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Star, Rigby Rockets, GINN, GINN Pocket Books, GINN All Aboard and Collins Big Cat.
Children are able to choose an individual reading book that they find interesting from the band that is most relevant to their ability.
