Phonics Curriculum 2020 2021
At Holbrook and Bedenham Primary Schools, we teach phonics using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme published by the Department for education. This is taught alongside spelling sessions which are themed on Room on the Broom (Reception and Key Stage 1) and Harry Potter (Key Stage 2).
We aim to support children to become confident readers and writers. In order for children to have enthusiasm to read and write, we teach phonics through a range of creative, engaging, multisensory and challenging lessons.
Phonics is taught alongside a rich English curriculum where children are exposed to various genres of texts.
All children develop at their own pace and teaching and learning is tailored to support individual needs and progress.
