EYFS and Year One

As explained in the phonics overview, EYFS and Year One follow the Read Write Inc scheme. This is delivered through both daily whole class sessions and daily group sessions.


Regular reading, poem and song sessions occur throughout the day. This not only support children in building up vocabulary and for reading to be modelled, but to help foster a love and engagement in reading.


Children in EYFS and Year One will take home a selection of books over the week. These include:

  • A Read Write Inc ‘Book Bag Book’ – this will have the same focus sound and red words as the weekly group text.
  • A levelled Oxford Reading Tree book – this is to share at home and attempt to read with a good level of independence. This should be closely matched to level of ability.
  • A story/non-fiction book from the book corner or library. This can be shared and enjoyed with a family member. Through this, skills such as fluency and expression can be modelled and developed alongside the realisation of joy that reading for pleasure can bring.
