Reading and Phonics

At Melton, we want the children to develop a love of reading that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. We want to help them to take joy in the texts they read. Our curriculum is driven by quality texts which provide the stimuli for increasing knowledge, developing thinking, promoting questioning and encouraging exploring across all subjects.

Discrete teaching of synthetic phonics happens daily at Melton in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. We use some Read Write Inc resources, including flash cards, and work systematically through the sounds. Please see our information leaflet about supporting your child’s early reading development at Melton.
