Reading by year group:
Reading at School
- Phonics – the mechanics of reading
- Comprehension – reading for understanding
Find out more about these two areas and how they are taught to your child in school here, as well as more information on the reading schemes schools might be using and how they are levelled.
Your child’s school will probably use a reading scheme such as the Oxford Reading Tree or Big Cat.
These books slowly build in difficulty and aim to match your child’s reading skills. They are designed to allow your child to practise the reading they can do without feeling like it’s too much or too hard.
