At Bishop Ellis school we teach a systematic phonic programme called Letters and Sounds. This is a resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. We teach a 20 minute session each day with the children split into 5 or 6 ability groups, allowing for personalised teaching with small adult to child ratios.
Thank you to those who attending our phonics and reading workshop. I really hope you found it useful and would love to hear some feedback!
