St. Sebastian's R. C. Primary School



Our Reading Scheme


Our reading scheme comprises of a wide range of good quality texts to engage the children in their reading.  Children will initially start to read phonically decodable books, matched to their ability.  This ensures that the children are practising and embedding the sounds and words they are learning in their phonic lessons.


All our books are banded and contain books from a variety of schemes.  When children are confident with their phonics, they are able to choose from our banded scheme.  These books are a mixture of 'scheme' books which will allow the children to practise key words from the National Curriculum and also 'non-scheme' books which have been carefully selected to match their ability but are 'real' books such as Roald Dahl, Michael Morpurgo, Anthony Horowitz, Cressida Cowell, J.K. Rowling and many more!
