Phonics

In Reception, Year One and Year Two, the teaching of early reading is primarily taught through daily phonic lessons. At Ankermoor, we follow Letters and Sounds where a high quality systematic synthetic phonics programme is followed and children are taught consistently to use phonics as the route to reading unknown words. Children practice early reading with fully decodable books that are matched to their phonic knowledge. For this, we use Collins Big Cats Letters and sounds books that are decodable and match each letters and sounds phase.
