Miss Bonsor is the Reading Subject Leader at The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School. Reading is part of our English, Language and Communication Faculty which is also led by Miss Bonsor.
Mrs Jacques is the Phonics Leader at The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School.
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.
