To achieve our intent, we have developed our own phonics programme which ensures a systematic, consistent and challenging start to learning to read and write. 'Bishop Phonics' was created by building on the existing skills, experience and expertise of our teaching team, whilst incorporating pedagogy and resources from experts in the field of phonics.

READING AT HOME
EYFS and Key Stage One
Children in Explorers and Year One bring home a decodable book to read aloud to an adult, as well as a book they have chosen to read for pleasure. Children in Year Two move on to our Bridging Books which support them on their journey to independent reading.
Reading at home is recorded in our Bishop Phonics Reading Records, an outline of how these work can be found in the videos below.
