We follow the letters and sounds framework which teaches children to read and write by splitting words into individual sounds.
The Letters and Sounds programme is taught in 6 different stages or phases.
Children usually learn phase 1, 2, 3 and 4 in Reception. Phase 4 and 5 learnt in Year 1. In Year 2 children continue to learn phase 5 until they are confident.
At school every child who is not yet confident at phase 5 has a daily phonics lesson. Children receive a daily phonics lesson until they are confident at phase 5.
