Throughout school we strive to encourage a rounded approach to reading where phonics skills are applied to increase fluency and improve comprehension. Our reading books are levelled to match the progression in phonics in order to offer children a range of fiction and non-fiction texts to challenge them at an appropriate level to ensure accelerated learning.
As children build up their knowledge of sounds they are able to apply their decoding skills to any unfamiliar word may it be real or nonsense. During lessons children practice their decoding skills by sounding out the letters in ‘alien words/ nonsense words’. Children are unable to rely on existing knowledge of real words, and instead have to use their grapheme-phoneme knowledge.
