English Martyrs Catholic Primary School

Walking with Jesus. God's love in action.


The teaching of phonics and early reading is undertaken using the Read, Write Inc scheme.

Children on this scheme have a Read, Write Inc Book Bag book that carefully matches their phonic ability. This book is changed regularly according to the stage of the scheme that children have reached.

The next stage is a book carefully matched to the children's reading and comprehension level, chosen from a selection of colour-banded books. More information is contained within the Reading Curriculum document below.
