Reading and Phonics​

At Ditton we believe that reading should be given the highest profile. Our aim is to instill a love of reading, for pleasure and for knowledge, from an early age. We have invested heavily in our reading environment! Each classroom has a welcoming reading area and our library has been completely remodelled and stocked with almost £10,000 of new books, which children and their parents are now able to use.

We have a huge variety of reading materials for the children to choose from. Books are banded into colours; pink through to magenta and sapphire. Each band contains books that are suitable for a given ability group and are made up from a mixture of scheme books (Oxford Reading Tree, Bug Club, Momentum, Project X, Rigby Star) and real books. There is a choice of fiction and non-fiction to choose from and they aim to satisfy a wide range of interests.
