At Riverside, we use the Oxford Reading Tree Floppy's Phonics Teaching Programme and associated reading scheme.
Floppy's phonics is a comprehensive and systematic phonics teaching programme is used daily to rigorously teach and practise phonics and enable children to read fluently by the end of KS1. .It includes motivational practice through fully decodable fiction and non-fiction texts correlated to Oxford Reading Tree Stages 1-6.
Daily routines are established for blending, spelling and handwriting so that children learn, revise and practise every letter-sound correspondence following the same process
