To support the teaching of Letters and Sounds we use a resource called Actiphons.
Actiphons is a unique phonics programme which inspires children to learn their phonics through playing fun, sporting activities.

Letters and sounds (also referred to as phonics) is when we teach the children the names of letters and the sounds that the letters make. This gives the children the knowledge they need to develop as readers.
From Reception through to Year 2 we teach phonics in phases from 1 – 5. They will move to the next phase as they become secure with the sounds, this includes recognising the sounds within words while reading and applying their sounds to their writing.
