From the beginning of their school journey, your child will be taught to read using a range of strategies, including phonics. Phonics teaching helps children recognise, say, read and write different sounds and blends of sounds. 

Children in Year 1 are screened by teachers to see how many sounds they know by the end of the summer term.

On this page we will be adding lots of information to support parents with using phonics at home.

PDF icon List of Year 1 and 2 'Common Exception' words - these can be used to support children's reading at home.

We now use Read Write Inc resources to help our children with their phonics. Click below for a useful guide and help with pronouncing all the sounds:
