In Foundation Stage and Year 1, children are taught phonics using the Letters and Sounds programme. This programme follows a phased approach to ensure the children are ready for the phonics screening check at the end of Year 1.

In class, children will be learning phonics, sight words and strategies to read unknown words. They will be part of a daily phonics session, which will develop their phonological knowledge and the skills of blending and segmenting.

Below are some resources which you may find useful to support your child's learning at home. Over the year, we will be running parent workshops to provide you with knowledge and strategies to support the work in school and to involve you in your child's learning.
