It is a national expectation that your child reads for 15 minutes every day. Reading is like any skill and practice makes perfect.


At Gilded Hollins we use the Soundswrite approach to the teaching of phonics. Teachers and Learning Support Assistants are trained for five consecutive days in how to deliver the programme. Soundswrite sessions take place on a daily basis in Key Stage One. Linked to Soundswrite is the Dandelion scheme of books that support each of the sounds learned. For further details please see the Reading Scheme page under the 'Our Curriculum' tab.
