In EYFS and KS1 we follow the Jolly Phonics scheme.

Reading

At Highfields we use book bands for reading. This consists of the following colour bandings:

 

Pink, Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange, Turquoise, Purple, White, Lime, Copper, Sapphire, Ruby and Black.

 

We use some scheme books and some high 'quality real' books, that provide a progressive structure for guided reading books in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stages One and Two.
