Phonics

Reading and Phonics

Reading in EYFS and KS1 is taught initially using a systematic, synthetic phonic approach. Phonics is taught daily as a discrete lesson and we use Phonics Bug as a core scheme to teach synthetic phonics which is multi-sensory exciting and engaging. During the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children develop their phonic knowledge and skills and apply these in both reading and spelling. As developing readers, children are encouraged to use a wider range of strategies to aid decoding of text and to enhance their understanding of material across a range of genre.
