Phonics & Reading information


At Theddlethorpe Academy we teach phonics using a scheme called THRASS (Teaching Handwriting, Reading and Spelling Skills). We also draw on a programme called Letters and Sounds.

We base our planning on thorough assessments of what each child has achieved.


Our pupils have the opportunity to read a wide range of texts. Their individual and guided reading books are from a range of schemes:

  • Oxford Reading Tree
  • Rigby
  • Badger
  • Rapid Readers

Children are able to choose an individual reading book that they find interesting from the band that is most relevant to their ability.
