We teach phonics in Reception, Year One and Year Two, however if your child has not made enough progress we will continue their phonics teaching into Key Stage Two.
Children are taught phonics in small groups by a trained adult. We use Jolly Phonics http://jollylearning.co.uk/overview-about-jolly-phonics/ and follow the Letters and Sounds http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/ guidance. Our phonics teaching is supported by other resources and our wide range of reading books.
Phonics is taught in six phases.
Pupils in Year One, take the national phonics screening test to see if they have met the national expected standard. Children who don't meet the required standard will have additional phonics tuition and be retested in the summer of Year Two.
