Being able to read is the most important skill children learn during their early schooling and has far-reaching implications for lifelong learning, confidence and well-being. High quality phonic teaching is the prime means by which we teach children how to read and spell words. At Moulton Primary, we follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ phonics programme and the guide is designed to help you, as parents, understand the phases so that you can support your child at home.

The regular and consistent approach to the teaching and learning of phonics in our school allows children to decode words more readily and this has a significant impact on reading fluency. We follow the Letters and Sounds strategy, working through phases one to six throughout EYFS and Key 1 and we support this using “Phonics Play”. If you would like to support your child at home with their phonics, look at the document linked below which will explain the phases in more detail.
