St Sebastian's RC Primary School

Phonics and Reading

At St Sebastian's, phonics is taught primarily using the 'Letters and Sounds' six-phase teaching programme.  Active, fun lessons are delivered daily from Nursery through to Year 2, with supplementary sessions to boost progress.


Our reading scheme draws on books from a wide range of publishers in order to allow our children to experience a broad range of different text types at every level of their development.

The reading books are mainly from the following schemes:

  • Rigby 
  • Ginn
  • PM
  • Lighthouse
  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Collins Big Cat

The Lighthouse and Oxford Guided Reading schemes are used in daily reading sessions across KS1 together with texts from a variety of sources, as in KS2.
