Systematic Synthetic Phonics is taught daily for 20-25 minutes to streamed groups of Nursery to Year 2 children. Groups are streamed in order to deliver more personalised learning to smaller groups of children.
We currently use ‘Phonics Play’ in addition to resources provided through the ‘Letters and Sounds’ document.
Our results are continuously improving. Last years Year 1 cohort made excellent progress in phonics considering their low starting point. 81% reached the expected standard in the phonics screening test.
This compares highly with the national figure of 69%.
