Reading & Phonics


At Lothersdale School we teach phonics using the Rocket Phonics programme. This DfE validated story-based SSP programme provides a balanced approach, focussing equally on blending for reading, and segmenting for writing and spelling.

Alongside the extensive phonics resources, we use the full Reading Planet reading programme, which is a whole-school solution that ensures every pupil achieves reading success and develops a real love of reading.
