At Sutton Manor we use a wide variety of reading books. Children can choose from many published schemes, rather than just one as this provides more choice. In Early Years into KS1, the children's reading books Collins Big Cat phonetically decodable books which is linked directly to The Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Programme and books are progressive to match the progression in learning phonics.
At KS2 children read a wide variety of age related books and year 6 children have access to Reading Plus.
We have a library in every classroom and children may choose and take home books each week. Children are encouraged to enjoy a wide variety of books. All classes have a class text for reading for pleasure, which is enjoyed in its entirety.
We use the Little Wandle validated Letters and Sounds programme to teach phonics progressively from Nursery through to KS1. Click HERE for a link to the website.

At Sutton Manor our English lessons prepare for the children to write for a range of purposes: we write to entertain, inform, discuss and persuade. The progression in the teaching of Grammar and Punctuation across the school esnures that standards improve through each year group. Our English Curriculum is a triangulated approach centered around the National Curriculum between Reading and studying a book, Grammar and Punctuation and Writing for a Purpose.
