At SASJ, we love phonics. As soon as the children start in Acorns, we start teaching them phonics as this is the grounding for their reading. We use PhonicsPlay to plan our lessons as it is a fun, interactive programme that the children love. There are many games on the website which you can access for free at home.
EYFS children are grouped within the class but we are always adaptable and if children need to go into other areas of the school for their learning, we have this potential.
The children are grouped throughout KS1 for phonics to enable the children to progress through the scheme at a pace that is relevant to them.
You may hear lots of new words when your child starts learning phonics so we have included a glossary of terms below to support you.
