Reading Schemes in Key Stage 1

Orchard Head J I & N School uses the Oxford Reading Tree scheme, which includes "Floppy Phonics" and "Songbird Phonics".

In Key Stage 1, the "Letters and Sounds" scheme is used in teaching and this is supported by "Jolly Phonics", which is song-based and encourages the correct use of sounds.
