At Lily Lane we use the following schemes to enhance our phonics, reading, spelling and punctuation.


KS1 – Read Write Inc phonics is a literacy programme that aims to get children reading and writing quickly. The programme enables teachers to develop children’s skills in reading, writing, spoken language, vocabulary, grammar and spelling in a fully integrated way to raise standards in children’s literacy and spark a life long love of reading. Below you can find some useful links about Read Write Inc and KS1 reading.

Fischer Family Trust
Fischer Family Trust Wave 3 is an early intervention for children who need extra time and support in learning to read and write. It is based on the pedagogy and practice of Reading Recovery. The aim with FFT Wave 3 is to accelerate learning so that each child makes enough progress in reading and writing in order to access a group intervention and/or continue to progress through whole class /group teaching.  FFT Wave 3 can be used across different year groups although texts will need to be adapted for different maturity levels. The programme contributes to a layered approach to interventions.

KS2 – Accelerated reader programme is where children read a book, take an online quiz, and get immediate feedback. Children respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading skills.

A comprehensive set of reports reveals how much a child has been reading, at what level of complexity, and how well they have understood what they have read. Vocabulary growth and literacy skills are also measured, giving teachers insight into how well children have responded to reading schemes and class instruction.
