Phonics at College Town
At College Town we follow the Letters and Sounds programme for our synthetics phonics teaching. Letters and Sounds is a six-phase teaching programme designed to help practitioners and teachers teach children how the alphabet works for reading and spelling. In EYFS and KS1, children have a short interactive daily phonics session.
Phase 1 begins in Nursery, Phase 2, 3 and 4 in Foundation Stage, Phase 5 in Year 1 and Phase 6 in Year 2. If children have not reached the required phase, they are identified in teacher’s planning and additional support will be put in place to ensure that children are able to keep up.Please read the information below to find out more.
