At Our Lady and St Johns, the children learn phonics throughout Early Years and KS1.

It is taught daily, in short sessions so that children can build up and practice skills they need to use in reading and writing. 

Practising the sounds is really vital.

We use a synthetic Phonics programme: Letters & Sounds

This is supplemented with: Jolly Phonics


Please see the videos below for support in pronouncing the letter sounds.
