We actively encourage children to develop a love of reading. Our new library area is a space where children can choose a book to read in a cosy space.
Reading Scheme and Phonics

At Branton Community Primary School we follow Read Write Inc (RWI) to teach phonics. We use this to introduce reading and spelling phonetically regular words from Reception through to Year 2 (and subsequent years if individuals need it). 

RWI is a popular phonics scheme. Like all phonics schemes, it teaches children the sounds in English, the letters that represent them, and how to form the letters when writing. At Branton we use the RWI reading books that are written using only the letters they have learnt at each level (and a small number of separately taught tricky words). In our opinion the children quickly feel confident and successful at decoding to read.
