Phonics

Phonic sessions take place everyday for 20 minutes in EYFS and 30 minutes in Key Stage 1. Phonics is taught in ability set groups and follows the Phonics Phases as appropriate to the grouping and year group. The aim is that children will be capable of reading fluently and spelling accurately by the end of year 2. In Key Stage 2 phonics continues to be taught implicitly through the daily spelling activity, some children who continue with the phonics phases will work in small group interventions.  The academy follows the letters and sounds programme.

Reading Books in EYFS and Key Stage 1 are chosen so children can apply their phonics knowledge acquisition in their reading.
