Reading and Phonics

At St Anthony’s we want children to leave EYFS with the skills necessary to read simple sentences and the
enthusiasm to read and engage with texts. We also want to cultivate a lifelong love of reading. We follow the Read, Write Inc scheme of work and hold multiple workshops throughout the year to support parents and children.
