You can find out more about phonics and reading in EYFS and Key Stage One on our phonics page. 

Texts are carefully chosen, both for reading in school and at home, according to children’s development with phonics. The book band progression can be found below. Texts are also assigned regularly on Reading Planet. 

Books should be 'decodable', which means that children should be able to read 90-100% of the words on the page independently using sounds they have already been taught. Re-reading books can also help children to build confidence with their decoding skills. 

Teachers will sometimes send home books that are not phonically decodable. These books are for sharing and can be read aloud to your child.
