We introduce each phoneme in the order set by the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme. The six phases of Letters and Sounds have been broken down into a detailed daily plan where new phonemes are introduced or previously taught ones consolidated. Each week a selection of sight words are also introduced (words that cannot be decoded).
The sessions involve the use of iPads, laptops, interactive whiteboards, games, wipe boards, books and much more to ensure all learning needs are catered for and sessions are interesting and informative.
Each week the children take home examples of phonemes and sight words they have learnt that week so they have the opportunity to consolidate their learning at home. Further through the Letters and Sounds programme the children will be given weekly spellings to learn at home in preparation for a test at school.
