Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Reading and Phonics


At Oasis Academy Broadoak children have daily phonics sessions which follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ Document, to help deliver fun and multi-sensory lessons. Once the children have completed all of the Phases they then follow the ‘Support for Spelling’ program.

A variety of reading schemes (Rigby Star, PM books and Oxford Reading Tree) are used to ensure a broad range of books are encountered by the children. At least one guided reading session takes place each week and a different book is taken home for the children to share with their family.

Reading corners/areas are set up in every class to encourage the enjoyment of reading and a ‘library’ session is held every Thursday, at the end of the day, for parents and carers of Reception and Year 1 children to share some reading time together and take home other books.
