At St Mary's C of E Primary Academy we use ‘Letters and Sounds’ as our Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme. This programme is followed with rigor and fidelity by all teachers and support staff. We teach discrete whole-class phonics lessons daily in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and we use Letters and Sounds for Phonics Intervention groups across Key Stage 2.
Our Reading Scheme books are arranged in line with the Letters and Sounds Phonic Phases. For their home reading book the children take home a book which matches the Phonic Phase that they are working in.
For more information about teaching and learning in Phonics at our school please contact our Phonics Champion - Mrs Vicky Lazenby.
