At Feniscowles, we are fully committed to the delivery of excellence in the teaching of Phonics. Through our high-quality, discrete Phonics teaching we ensure children develop the skills and knowledge that they need in order to recognise sounds, decode words and become confident readers. We believe that this, combined with a text rich learning environment, promotes a ‘love of reading’ culture where children enjoy reading. We recognise that reading is an important life skill, providing a secure foundation from an early age, where children can gain access and have more opportunities to achieve in all areas of the curriculum. At Feniscowles, we strive to ensure that all children become successful and fluent readers by the end of KS1.
