Phonics and Reading


At Redlands we teach systematic synthetic phonics using Letter and Sounds progression.


Our reading books are colour coded according to the National Book Bands from pink through to lime. 

Early reading books are phonetically decodable, drawing from the Phonics Bug range (Pearson), Floppy Phonics (ORT), and Big Cat (Collins).
