What is phonics?

Phonics is a way of teaching children how to read and write. It helps children hear, identify and use different sounds that distinguish one word from another in the English language.

Understanding phonics will also help children know which letters to use when they are writing words.


Children progress through each of the phonic phases from phase 1 to phase 6. Phonics is taught for at least 20-30 minutes daily.  Children are streamed across KS1 so that the sessions are pitched appropriately for each ability. Each lesson follows a clear sequence as recommended by Letters and Sounds;

Introduction, Revisit/ Review, Teach, Practise, Apply, Assess.

Repetition of the sounds helps them to become embedded.
