Phonics and Reading

In Key Stage 1, the teaching of Phonics is supported by Letters and Sounds. Further reference to Letters and Sounds is continued and reinforced in Key Stage 2. 

We have a wide range of books which are used for home reading, guided reading and shared reading. These books are colour coded at different levels. We use a variety of fiction, non fiction, poetry, playscripts and other key text types from Oxford Reading Tree, Collins Big Cat and Oxford Project X, and other reading material in school.

We celebrate our love of reading everyday.  In addition, we celebrate 'Book Week' on an annual basis, where we welcome a visiting author or visit our local Library.


World Book Day 

There have been some strange happenings at Howick and they have inspired our reading and writing. 

We love reading at Howick

This year developing reading is on our School Improvement Plan.

We are excited to be taking part in the Lancashire Fantastic Book Awards, a fantastic opportunity to promote reading skills.
