PHONICS (To be updated for 2021/22)

Currently, we teach phonics in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 using a variety of methods - letters and sounds and Jolly Phonics.  We also support children beyond Year 2 who have difficulties with reading with additional support and interventions/  As directed by the government and Local Authority, we are currently reviewing processes and procedures in phonics and are due to adopt a new package/curriculum in this area during Spring 2021.  Currently, we are researching into the best approach for our school and making sure the staff are trained accordingly.  We look forward to updating you in the new calendar year.  Meanwhile, we continue to ensure that our phonics teaching is of a good quality using the materials we have been used to using for a good number of years.
