Phonics & Spelling
Children are made readers on the laps of their parents - Emilie Buchwald
Whole class Phonics is taught in Reception and Key Stage 1, using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ six phase teaching programme, from the Primary National Strategy. In addition to this, we introduce the ‘Jolly Phonics’ sounds and actions.
Intervention programs are used throughout the school to boost phonic knowledge in small groups or individually. These include the ‘Lexia’ , 'Nessy' 'Clicker 7' computer programs and ‘Sound Discovery’.
