Phonics and Reading Schemes

At Worle Village, we use the Letters and Sounds program, supported by the use of Jolly Phonics kinaesthetic actions as a basis for the planning of our high quality, systematic phonics programme. 

Children begin their phonics journey in the first term of Reception and children make rapid progress in their reading journey.


As children move through the early stages of acquiring phonics, they practise by reading phonetically decodable texts which are very closely matched to a child’s current phonics phase so that each child can achieve success in their reading.


Once children have a secure knowledge of letter/sound correspondences and can blend words confidently, they access our book banded reading scheme which has a wide variety of books accessible for children as they develop through fluency and maturity. This is designed to give children experience of a variety of reading genres. There are fiction and non-fiction books within each level. 

All children are encouraged to select books from the classroom, library or home to share with their parents to encourage a love of reading.


The school has high expectations for pupils to read at home. We ask that a child reads at home a minimum of 3 times per week in KS1 and 5 times per week in KS2




Some texts we recommend reading with your Year 2 child are...


We have at least two PE lessons per week.  Please ensure your child's kit is in school at all times to enable us to be flexible.

We do PE in all types of weather so please ensure your child has suitable PE kit.  In the Summer months we recommend shorts and t-shirt and in the winter long trousers with t-shirt and hoodie.  Trainers or daps should be worn.  

All kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name.

An example of our kit, which can be purchased from NK Sports, is below or your child needs a plain white t-shirt and black shorts.

We also do the 'Daily Mile' each day in the playground. 



Snacks and Drinks

Your child should bring to school, each day, a named water bottle which they will have access to during the day.  Please make sure it only contains water as spillage of squash can attract unwanted insects such as ants and wasps.

Children over five can still have milk but this needs to be ordered by completing a form, available from the office, and ordered through School Milk Service.

Fruit is provided, by school, to eat during break time.
