Felsted Primary School

Reading in Felsted Primary



Phonics is taught in the school through the THRASS programme.  There is further information about THRASS under the section  'Parental Information' then'How to help at home'.

 The school uses a variety of reading schemes in Reception and KS1.  These are banded according to the level of difficulty.

High Frequency Words are used to augment our reading scheme and these are graded into levels of difficulty in line with the new National Curriculum.

Phonics are taught using the THRASS scheme and this is also linked to spellings.  

Reading at Felsted Primary is also promoted successfully through our Reading Power Scheme as explained below.
