English Information


At Manor Hill we use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics in a systematic and engaging way. Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive daily taught phonics sessions.

As your children develop their reading skills here at Manor Hill they will progress through our book banded reading scheme. All children are provided with a reading book matched to their reading level and we encourage progression through each band. We recognise that reading progress is most successful when supported at home with regular reading. We ask that pupils read as often as possible with an adult at home at least three times per week.
