Reading & Phonics
Reading is a priority at St Vincent's VC Academy and we firmly believe in the 3 Ps of reading
Reading is taught daily at St Vincent's.
In Foundation Stage and Key Stage One this is through daily RWInc sessions and the introduction of guided reading in Key Stage One and in Key Stage Two, this is through daily whole class guided reading. At St Vincent's we use Ruth Miskin's fantastic Read Write Inc phonics programme from Foundation Stage - Year 2 and where needed, higher up the school. Children then have a phonetically decodable book matched to their RWInc level which they take home to enjoy reading at home with family.

Children are given the opportunity to put their reading skills into action through wider curriculum lessons.
There are many opportunities to develop reading for pleasure and a love of books at St Vincent's. Each classroom has a designated reading area with high quality texts which the children can select to read as well as the newly developed library. Doorways to reading as well as Reading Ambassadors are currently in development to further promote reading within St Vincent's.
