Children in KS1 follow 'Letters and Sounds synthetic phonics programme. 


At Ponsbourne St. Mary's, we want to ensure that every single child in our school gets the very best support in learning to read and write. Teaching synthetic phonics, in a systematic way, drives up standards in reading and writing. And the new Year 1 Phonics Screening Check emphasises the importance of phonics in ensuring every child becomes a successful reader.


Children read a range of fiction and non-fiction books from the Oxford tree reading scheme.
