Phonics is a way of teaching children to read. They are taught how to:

  • Recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes
  • Identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make e.g. sh and oo
  • Blend these sounds together from left to right to make a word.

Children can then use this knowledge to segment and blend new words that they hear or see.

Phonics is taught throughout the school and is one of the keys to learning to read. Within our Curriculum, follow this link for the Little Wandle, Letters and Sounds Validated Scheme.
