How we teach phonics

Our pupils begin to develop their phonics skills using the fabulous songs from Jolly Phonics. This scheme uses actions for the 42 letter sounds; more information can be seen on the Jolly Phonics website. As the children develop their knowledge to use digraphs (sounds made using 2 letters), our school phonics scheme involves Letters and Sounds. This system was designed by the Department for Education and more details can be found below.
