A proud member of

Reading and phonics


We love reading at Mill Dam!


Our nursery children develop their pre reading skills rapidly using the Launchpad to Literacy and finding sounds within their environment through play, talk and song.


Learners in Key Stage One and EYFS have a daily phonics session with groupings based on the current learning needs of individuals and rapidly develop their confidence and independence. Phonics sessions follow ‘Read, Write Inc’ which keeps their learning moving on and teaches early reading in a fun and engaging way. All families in school have access to Oxford Owl which includes resources, videos and activities to develop phonics further at home.
