The whole approach is making our children more excited and interested in reading which is the best thing you could ask from a reading scheme.
The Reading Planet Rocket Phonics programme has been an absolute life saver.
The children love the books! They’re lovely and inviting. The non-fiction are really engaging. They’re very bright, have fantastic illustrations and the length isn’t overwhelming.
In our catchment area, children don’t have many outside experiences, so the stories strike the right balance of being relevant and relatable, but humorous and engaging too.
