Phonics Teaching

At Durrington Infant and Junior Schools we follow the Letters and Sounds programme of study for the order and pace of phonics teaching. Across the Infant and Junior school we use THRASS charts and resources as teaching prompts and for encouraging the children’s independence in selecting the correct phoneme or grapheme. Mrs Champion-West is our Phonics leader across the schools.


Across the Infant and the Junior schools, our reading books are banded into a wide range of reading levels. In the Infant school our wide variety of ‘real books’ and some popular reading scheme books (Collins Big Cats and Project X) are levelled according to the National Book Band colour system ranging from lilac (wordless books) up to pearl (long chapter books).

In the Junior school, children begin to use the Accelerated Reader programme which levels our library of ‘real’ reading books (up to date fiction and non-fiction by well known and loved authors) and some reading scheme books (particularly at the lower levels) using its own number system. The children work their way up through the levels in point 1 increments by passing computer based quizzes on the books they have read. Using the childrens Accelerated Reader login, Parents and Carers are able to see their childs progress via the Accelerated Reader Home Connect portal.

We have a guideance sheet which explains the different book band levels.
