Reading and Phonics

Phonics and Reading
The ability to read and write well is a vital skill for all children, paving the way for an enjoyable and successful school experience. The children will have a 20 minute phonics session each day and then have the opportunity to apply their reading and writing skills across the different areas of learning.
We begin our phonics teaching at Phase 2 of the letters and sounds programme.
Sounds are introduce in sets and we teach the sounds in the following order:
set 1: s a t p
Set 2: i n m d
Set 3: g o c k
Set 4: ck e u r
Set 5: h b f ff l ll ss
Learning to read some tricky words: the to I no go into
With our sounds we will continually recap and repeat them, as this helps us to remember them. 
We use the jolly phonics to support the chidlren in learning the phonic sounds. The children particulary enjoy singing the songs and learning the actions.
