Phonics and Reading

At Buckingham Park Primary School, we teach children to read using the Read, Write, Inc Phonics programme. You can find out more information about this on our Read Write Inc page.


How to help

Probably the easiest way to help your child is to read each day. Our Reading Activities leaflet will provide lots of activities to make reading an even more enjoyable and active experience for all. Children should be encouraged to read aloud and read on their own, but being read to is really important, too, so don’t overlook the bedtime story.





Suggested Reading Lists

We have compiled a suggested reading list for each year group. Reading a wide range of books throughout the primary age range will greatly benefit your child in many ways including  feeding their imagination and enriching their vocabulary which will over time improve their ability to write and use language in the spoken and written form.

If you find your child has read all the books on the year group list then please take a look at the previous year's list.

You will find the reading lists at the very bottom of this page.
