Phonics Scheme


To enable children in the reception class and beyond to read and write we teach phonics using the letter sounds rather than the letter names. Children say each sound and then blend the sounds together to read or write the whole word or sentence.  The Jolly Phonics songs and teacher books are used to provide pictures to support the sounds. The tricky words which cannot be sounded out are taught as whole words.
