Phonics lessons enable the children to develop early skills in reading and writing. At Fulbridge, the children are taught the sounds of the letters through the StoryTime Phonics programme and whole class teaching. Each sound is linked to a real book and has an action to help the children remember and relate the sound to the book.
StoryTime Phonics follows the phases of the Letters and Sounds document. Alongside learning the sounds, the children are taught to read and write Tricky Troll and Fairy words (common high frequency words). They are taught the skills of blending sounds for reading and segmenting sounds for spelling. Click on the links below to find out more about each phase.
