St George's CE Primary School and Nursery

Nurturing the Spirit Succeeding Together Learning for Life


In St George's we use the Rigby Star and Navigator reading schemes, but these are also supplemented by a large range of other reading materials such as Oxford Reading Tree and Pearson Bug Club."


All pupils take part in daily phonic sessions. Phonic sessions are planned using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ document. Both Nursery and Reception pupils have a book corner where they can go and quietly look at a book.

Parents are encouraged to share a book with their pupil each night. Once pupils start on our reading scheme they have sound pots which re-enforce the sounds we are learning and these sounds can be used to blend/segment words. High Frequency words are given out on a tag in which pupils can gain stars once a word is given correctly.

There are daily story times for pupils in Nursery and Reception.
