Reading and phonics

Reading is a valuable, lifelong skill that intersects all areas of the curriculum. We develop our pupils through independent and shared reading as well as regular library sessions which empower them to find pleasure in reading.

At Euler Academy, we teach phonics through the DFE validated, systematic synthetics phonics programme Bug Club. Part of the Bug Club family, Bug Club Phonics is one of the DfE’s approved phonics teaching programmes and aims to help all children in our school learn to read in a fun and accessible way. Following its own proven progression, the whole school programme matches the National Curriculum. Children work sequentially through the phases, developing phonic knowledge, blending and segmenting skills.

We use the Bug Club Phonics scheme for our early readers, the Bug Club reading scheme for our 1:1 reading, Bug Club Comprehension for our guided reading sessions and we have a paid subscription for all pupils to access texts online at home.
