At St Ann's we help your child to get ready for learning to read and write using phonics by developing their understanding that spoken words are made up of different sounds. Your child will take part in a phonics session every day. These skills are fun-filled with an emphasis on teaching the skills your child will need for reading and writing. The programme that we use to help us plan and teach high quality phonics sessions is called Letters and Sounds. This is a government recommended scheme.
