Phonics

Phonics

Pupils will be taught to sound out and blend unfamiliar printed words quickly and accurately using their phonic knowledge.  Village Infants follows the Letters and Sounds: Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics, Six-phase Teaching Programme from Phase one in the Nursery through to Phase six in Year 2 (see link below) 

Pupils will be taught Phases 1,2,3 and 4 throughout the Foundation Stage.  Phases 3 and 4 will be re-visited in Year 1 and Phase 5 will be taught with additional catch up programmes in place where necessary.  At the end of Year 1 all pupils will take the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test.  Any pupils who fail this test will be given additional phonic intervention and will re-take the test the following year in Year 2.  This will take place alongside the teaching of Phase 6 in Year 2.  There will be movement between the phases as appropriate to pupils developing phonic knowledge.
