Phonics Teaching

Phonics is a way of teaching children to read quickly and skilfully. It is a first step on the road to reading.

Children are taught to:

  • Recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes.
  • Identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make.
  • Blend these sounds together from left to right to make a word.

In Foundation, phonics is taught through Letters and Sounds

This method continues throughout KS1 using the progressive phases of Letters and Sounds. Children are assessed regularly using a diagnostic spelling test to assess individual needs.

In Key Stage 2, a progressive spelling programme linked to Letters and Spelling Bank is in place to support the teaching of spelling.
