KS1 Reading Schemes


Our school provides a print rich environment for all our pupils. We have a common reading area as KS1 library, stocked with a wide variety of books from many different genres, so that we can cater for the different learning interests of all our pupils.

All our reading books are labelled and sorted into coloured book bands, including our guided reading books and home reading books. This helps us to monitor the reading progression of our pupils throughout their entire school life.

All classrooms have an interesting, well stocked book area which includes fiction and non-fiction books; it also reflects the diverse culture of our school.

Our school also has trained Teaching Assistants who work with identified children on Project X code scheme to accelerate their reading progress.


Reading Schemes Used:

  • Project X (aimed at accelerating progress in reading, especially in Guided Reading sessions)
  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Phonics Bug( to support reading in phonics)
