Phonic First Guided Reading

Phonics First Reading

In addition to discrete phonics teaching, we also consistently deploy Phonics First Guided Reading at Milton Park. Starting in Term 2 of Reception, all Guided Reading sessions follow the same phonics-driven format which is designed to ensure that children apply their phonics knowledge in order to gain reading fluency. Once decoding becomes automatic, the children have more capacity for comprehension. This approach continues with children until they are fluent readers.
