Reading at Parkside

What reading and phonics schemes do we use at Parkside?

Parkside Phonics


At Calverley Parkside we use the Letters and Sounds Principles and Practice guidance document to teach phonics sessions. 


You may find out more about this here.

Parkside Reading Scheme




We use both Collins Big Cat texts and Bug Club texts in our reading scheme. 


A guide to book bands is below, to support you in knowing what current level your child is reading at.



In addition to these books, we also have a wide range of other texts within each book band to ensure that all children are able to choose interesting and engaging books.
