Phonics in Early Years:

If you would like to know more about the phonics taught in our classes, either to support your children or look for yourself, we follow Letters and Sounds.

When we teach a different sound we will teach the children to say it, hear it in words, to write it and to recognise it.

We teach the children actions and a song to each of the sounds, which helps them to remember, if you would like to know more then watch the songs yourselves:
