Phonics and Reading

As well as teaching and learning sounds through the books that we study, we also teach daily phonics sessions. The sequence of the sounds that we teach match with those that we explore through our topic texts.  This document shows the sequence of sounds taught and how they match with our topic texts. 

Reading books that children bring home have also been carefully sequenced so that when children learn sounds in class , home reading books help children to practice key phonics work at home.
