"To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark."           —     Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

The teaching of phonics is how a child learns to hear and then recognise the sounds and sight of letters. Phonics is an integral part of teaching a child to read. The ability to read, ultimately impacts on a child’s skills in spelling and writing. Children learn to read by understanding and recognising the letters and sounds (phonics), but also by being immersed in literature, text and books. Phonics is taught exclusively and is part of the wider teaching of reading and writing at Willingdon.

In EYFS and KS1 phonics is taught in daily 30 minute lessons. Phonics continues into KS2 for those children that have gaps in their phonic knowledge.

We aim to make our phonics sessions active and engaging for all learners using high quality resources and key texts.
