Our governors and SIP have decided we need a reading scheme throughout the school, based on the poor practice of a few teachers. As KS1 teachers were a keen to update and improve phonics. We had a rep in from phonics bug and liked the resources, but the planning wasn't quite what we wanted. Reading scheme to year 6 was fab though. We had a rep in from floppy's phonics, but the reading books were less good (ORT and projectX), though the GR notes for teachers and assessment bits were fab for management. The phonics plans were acceptable, though not perfect. A couple of us use phonicsplay plans at the moment and would like practical resources to go with it to then make our own phonics scheme, though management less keen as they don't have so much control. Sooo what do those of you in excellent schools do? And does projectX appeal to girls as well, it looked very boy orientated? Sorry for all these questions, but I want to argue against the schemes we have looked at so far and so need some 'evidence' that other things work.
