Phonics are taught from Pre-school through to Year 2. After this, children may require further support or may be ready to explore other spelling strategies and rules. Teachers in EYFS and KS1 follow Letters and Sounds supported by resources from Jolly Phonics, to ensure that all of the phases are covered by the end of year 1, when the children have a phonics screening. Rigorous planning and ongoing assessments ensure we cover all the National Curriculum requirements.
Our Phonics Mat helps children to use their phonic knowledge when writing.
