Phonics and Reading

Welcome to our Phonics and Reading learning page! 


The curriculum lead for reading and phonics is Miss Coady. If you have any ideas or queries relating to this area of the curriculum, please contact her by email:


At Hogarth Primary School, we aim to create confident readers who have a passion for reading; reading for pleasure or as a resource for learning in every subject of our creative curriculum.


On this page you will find a range of resources that offer suggestions to aid reading at home as well as high quality book suggestions, and information regarding how we implement and evidence the impact of reading at Hogarth Primary School. 



Phonics - We use the DfE Letters and Sounds Phonics scheme to provide structure, progression and continuity to our phonics teaching and learning. The children begin this programme in EYFS and continue into Year One. All Year One children take part in the national phonics assessment toward the end of that academic year. Some children may need to continue this programme into Year Two. 


Reading- The programmes of study for reading at key Stages One and Two consist of two dimensions:

  • word reading
  • comprehension (both listening and reading).


At Hogarth we teach these skills through daily class reading, guided reading or shared reading sessions and individual reading which caters for all abilities. We encourage and support the need for all children to read every day, at school and at home. It is essential for them to develop as writers.


We aim to ensure that our children are reading books that are relevant and enjoyable for their ability. This involves children taking a short comprehension test which measures how well the children understand what they have read. The score gives the teacher a range of books that are suitable for the child's reading ability. This enables children to be motivated and encouraged to read more and improve their comprehension performance as books are suitable for each child.



This is evidenced through end of term assessments and the skills that children apply throughout the curriculum. Children are seen to become more confident and independent readers in and out of the classroom as their attainment progresses and they are able to use reading as a resource for learning and for pleasure.
