Phonics is taught daily from Foundation Stage to the end of Year 2 in small groups so that work is closely matched to the needs of each child. We use a range of approaches driven by synthetic phonics and including sight vocabulary and contextual work. We follow the published guidance from Letters and Sounds. We do not follow a published scheme. Children are entered for the National Phonics test at the end of Year 1. Those who do not meet the expected level are re-entered at the end of Year 2.

Letters and sounds: This website has games based on each phase and some printable games.

Letter Sounds (British English)

Listen to the 42 letter sounds of Jolly Phonics, spoken in British English. Each letter sound is clearly spoken twice, before an example word is given.

Perfect for parents, teachers and children who aren't sure how to pronounce the letter sounds.
