Together we will help your child achieve


Letters and Sounds

Phonics is now taught for 30 minutes at the start of each day in groups within the class. Children are taught the single sounds and then the digraphs and trigraphs. They are taught a new phoneme and related grapheme, then how to blend the sound within words. They then use the new grapheme in spellings, using their fingers to segment words.




Children in all year groups Foundation - Year 2 take part in focused reading sessions every day in the afternoon, developing reading skills.
