At Hoylandswaine we follow the RWI Phonic scheme of work.  This is a fun, fast paced and interactive phonic programme that we deliver daily throughout Reception and Year 1.  The sounds taught to children are broken down into 3 sets and these can be found below.  Our aim is for all our children to fluent in set 1, 2 and 3 sounds by the end of Year 1.

Quality Texts

We have carefully planned our reading  curriulum to give our children exposure to a range of  quality texts that will give them to skills to read with confidence and most importantly instill a love of reading.  Many of these texts have been selected from the 5 Plagues of Reading Spine, and a copy of this can be found below.  This is a great suggested reading list for your child throughout their time at primary school so parents may wish to purchase some of these books themselves.
