Here at Leigh St Mary's we teach Sounds-Write as our whole school phonics programme. Sounds-Write is a brilliant phonics programme for all pupils. All of our staff are Sounds-Write trained and we consistently deliver the Sounds-Write approach to teaching phonics. On a daily basis we see the children transferring their phonic strategies into their reading and writing. Please visit the Sounds-Write homepage for more information
At Leigh St Mary's we use a variety of reading book schemes to help capture children's imaginations and also to help them to use their phonics skills. These are the books that we are currently using within our reading scheme; Sounds Write, Dandelion Readers, Phonics Bug, Project X, Songbirds, Story Sparks, Tree Tops, various non fiction texts, Oxford Reading Phonic Books and the Oxford Reading Tree.
