Welcome to the Primary

How do we teach phonics and reading?

Learning to read is a key skill for our youngest learners to master. In Reception and KS 1 we use ‘Bug Club Reading Books’ and ‘Bug Club Phonics’ schemes to teach reading. Our phonics programme is carefully structured to allow children to master phonics and become confident, enthusiastic readers.

Each child has a personalised homepage where they'll find the eBooks they've been allocated by the teacher and motivating rewards. The online reading world ensures children can access independent reading resources anywhere at any time.

Bug Club books are graded into colour-coded Book Band levels, and within each level there is a carefully planned progression of books. This fine progression gives children plenty of opportunity to develop their reading skills and master each fine step while moving through the reading programme.

Reading at home is one of the most important things you can do to support your child. To find out more please check out the parent section at
