Key Stage 1 Phonics

We teach the ‘Letters and Sounds’ government approved phonics scheme from Nursery into Foundation and Year 1 and on into Year 2 for some children.

‘Letters and Sounds’ is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007.

It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.  It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.

Please follow the link for a DVD clip of how to pronounce letter sounds (phonemes) as we teach them in school.
