Collins Big Cat Phonics

A beautiful series of phonics books including many non-fiction titles. Children learn to read by using their knowledge of sounds rather than relying on other clues such as pictures or the pattern of a story. Please note that Big Cat Phonics books have more words per page than most of our other reading schemes. This can make them seem more difficult.

Engage Literacy is a lovely new reading scheme from Raintree with engaging stories, beautiful illustrations and interesting non-fiction topics, to motivate and support young readers. All titles are precisely levelled, with new vocabulary being introduced and reinforced throughout the levels. Each title includes really useful parent / teacher information and helpful questions to check comprehension. It is hard to put a finger on exactly why Engage is so likeable – but it is just a beautiful, gimmick free reading series.

Floppy's Phonics

A series of phonics books involving the familiar and much loved Floppy the dog from the Oxford Reading Tree series. Whilst there are still some ‘tricky’ words in the stories, more emphasis is on children reading by sounding out words using their phonic knowledge, rather than relying on other clues such as using the picture or following a repetitive pattern.
