We use ORT...wish we used read, write, inc as a reading scheme or some other scheme linked to phonics learning.
One of my class is working on phase 4 of L&S, and was given a reading books today where she had to read words like enough...hmmmm! Another is at phase 5 and was given a 'Cat in the Hat' book to read as is off the reading scheme. She finished it in 5 mins flat and found all words easy! TAs sort reading books in my school, not sure I approve, but I can't change everything in the first couple of weeks.
We use a number of schemes to give breadth
Project X (phonics in earlier stages)
Sounds and Letters Floppy Phonics
Big cat Phonics
Rigby Star phonics
Rag tag Rhymes
ORT All Stars
We have mainly Ginn360 & ORT Project X Treetops, Myths & Legends, Graphic Novels & Classics in KS2
