We follow the Letters and Sounds Phonics Programme recommended by the Government, supported by LCP planning for schools.
The children are taught in groups according to which phase they are on within their year group. When the children have finished the Phonics Programme they move onto Support for Spelling through Year 2 and Key Stage 2. This includes the teaching of grammar, punctuation and spelling.
During Reception, children take part in lots of phonic based activities through the day. In Key Stage 1 phonics is also revised and applied through handwriting and Literacy. Children will learn sayings and actions with each sound. Phonics is a key part of early school life and is monitored and assessed continually.
