Phonics is recommended as the first reading strategy that children should be taught. At St. Nicholas, phonics runs alongside other teaching methods to help children develop vital reading skills and to give them a love of reading and the skills to write and spell.
At St. Nicholas, reading and phonics are taught in accordance with the National Curriculum using Monster Phonics. All staff at the school have received training and have a shared understanding of how to teach children to read and write. Their journey begins in the Early Years Foundation Stage, where phonics is introduced using the scheme above and continues in Key Stage 1 and beyond.
Children in EYFS and KS1 are given Monster Phonics books to read which match their reading level and these are provided through books and e-books so children can read them in school and at home.
Please do contact us for further details of our phonics provision if you need further information.
