“At Smallthorne, our aim is to instil a love of reading in our students and provide them with the skills and strategies to become proficient, confident and engaged readers.”

From Nursery to Year 2, every child has a daily Phonics lesson using the Animaphonics scheme in order to help them achieve the above.  Please click the links below to see an overview of this scheme.
