Phonics Teaching at St Andrew's
We use the Read, Write Inc Phonics scheme to teach phonics.
Take a look at the Phonics website for ideas you can do at home to help.
Reading at St Andrew's
The main reading scheme we use is Accelerated Reader (AR). It is a reading management and monitoring programme that aims to foster independent reading. The internet-based software assesses reading age, and suggests books that match pupils' needs and interests. Pupils take computerised quizzes on the books and earn AR points as they progress.
