Phonics

Phonics Scheme

 

We teach Synthetic Phonics using the Primary Education Letters and Sounds scheme recommended by the Department of Education. 

 

Jolly Phonics is the main source of material used  in class.

 

How does Jolly Phonics work?

 

Using a synthetic phonics approach, Jolly Phonics teaches children the five key skills for reading and writing. The programme continues through school enabling the teaching of essential grammar, spelling and punctuation skills.

 

The five skills taught in Jolly Phonics

 

1.Learning the letter sounds

Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. This includes alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.

2.Learning letter formation

Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.

3.Blending

Children are taught how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words.

4.Identifying the sounds in words (Segmenting)

Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.

5.Tricky words

Tricky words have irregular spellings and children learn these separately.
