Across Early Years & KS1 children are taught Phonics following the Letters and Sounds order of sounds. This resource aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills as well as preparing children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. We have also begun to embed the structure of the Read Write Inc into our phonics lesson to help improve the application of phonics into our writing and reading. 

Phonics is recommended as the first strategy that children should be taught in helping them learn to read. It runs alongside other teaching methods such as Guided Reading and Shared Reading to help children develop all the other vital reading skills and hopefully give them a real love of reading.
