Key Stage 1 reading schemes

At Tudor Grange Samworth Academy we use the following Key Stage 1 reading schemes:

  • Our phonics scheme is Read Write Inc.
  • Lexia
  • Accelerated Reader and Star Reader – For pupils with a reading age of 6 years and above. A guided reading programme that encourages pupils to read for pleasure with an online STAR assessment to track progression. Reports give us accurate data making sure pupils are reading at the correct level and with meaning.
  • Accelerated Reader – Star Early Literacy – For pupils with a reading age below 6 years with a sight vocabulary of fewer than 100 words. Some pupils with English as their second language also benefit from this audio-visual programme. The diagnostic reporting gives staff information about individual pupils’ literacy skills, any gaps in their development and which skill sets they are ready to learn and practise.
