As the Nursery children attend for 5 sessions a week, we are able to have a structured and clear approach to the teaching of Phonics. The children will enjoy a daily 15 minute differentiated phonic session; we follow the government programme, Letters and Sounds alongside the Jolly Phonics scheme. In Nursery we concentrate on Phase 1 activities which develop children’s speaking and listening skills which lay the foundations for the phonic work in Phase 2 and beyond. As and when we feel a child is ready to begin Phase 2, we teach 1 sound per week, with activities focussing on the using and applying of that sound. For more information, please refer to our document ‘Ideas for home learning: Phonics’ which is available to download at the bottom of this page.
