Phonics in Foundation Stage
Children in all Foundation and KS1 classes receive daily phonics input. Children in Foundation stage begin learning sounds using the Jolly Phonics programme and then move onto following the Letters and Sounds teaching sequence.
Phonics is used to build the children's confidence in speaking and listening and to prepare children for learning to read through the development of their phonic knowledge and skills.
