Key Stage One Phonics
In Key Stage 1 we have daily phonics lessons which are taught to the children in short, fast paced sessions and the children are split in to small groups according to their ability. We follow the suggested ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme which splits the phonemes in to 6 phases. To enable phonics to be taught in a fun, interactive way, which is memorable for the children we also use the Ruth Miskin materials from Read, Write, Inc. The phonemes are introduced through cards with fun, engaging pictures and rhymes to ensure the children remember each new phoneme.
