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.Our reading scheme uses the 'book banding'  system. In Early Years into KS1, the children's reading books are phonetically decodable 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 school library and children may choose and take home books each week. All classes have a class text for reading for pleasure, which is read in its entirety.  

Oxford Owl has a wide range of e- books for children to enjoy. Click here for a link to the website, Registration and access is FREE.


We use the Letters and Sounds phases to teach phonics progressively from Nursery through to KS1. To supplement this we use the Phonicsplay resources and the website with its interactive games.
