PHONICS

The Teaching of Phonics

 

Phonics

 

At Forestdale Primary School early reading is taught using synthetic phonics as the main approach to reading. Pupils are systematically taught the phonemes (sounds), how to blend each sound within each word for reading and how to segment the sounds in order to write words. Children are taught to use their phonic skills and knowledge as their first approach to reading, but are also taught high frequency words which do not completely follow the phonic rules.

 

The school follows the government published programme 'Letters and Sounds'.
