Overview

Rose Report (2006)


Quick Reference

The Rose Report on the teaching of reading skills in primary schools identified five competencies which children should be able to demonstrate before they can progress to the successful acquisition of reading skills. These are: recognition of letters (and groups of letters such as digraphs) (st); the ability to sound out phonemes (s); the ability to hear and blend phonemes (str); the reading of phonically regular words (sat); the reading of some irregular words (she).As well as stressing the importance of ‘pre‐reading skills’ acquisition, the Report, whose full title was An Independent Review of the Teaching of Early Reading, was instrumental in encouraging the use of synthetic phonics as the most effective approach to the teaching of reading to young pupils, suggesting that ‘“synthetic” phonics is the form of systematic phonic work that offers the vast majority of beginners the best route to becoming skilled readers’ (para. 47).
