Reading and Phonics
Reading is really, really important! We use an online system for our reading books called Bug Club. All children have a log in (found in the front of their reading diaries) and the books are linked to their reading level. The school code is TAJM
Our phonics scheme is Lesley Clarke's Phonics. You are able to log in and access workshops and the phonics we are covering in school. This term we will be looking at Phase 5b (workshop 9), please either see Dojo or ask one of us for the log in details. Phase 5b workshop
