What is Phonics?

Phonics is a way of teaching reading where your child is taught to read letters or groups of letters by saying the sound(s) they represent. Children can then start to read words by blending the sounds together to make a word.

How will my child learn Phonics?

All children have been assessed on their Phonics sounds and their ability to segment and blend words in order to read them. This assessment will happen every half-term to track your child’s progress.

Phonics will take place daily. Children will be streamed in a smaller group with an adult, who focuses learning on the gaps in phonics knowledge the children may have.
