Children are taught how to listen and discern sound as the progressively learn the sounds and names of:
each letter a,b,c,
the sound two letters make together e.g. ch, sh, oo
the sound three letters e.g. ing, igh
and the various letter patterns and options there are for spelling and writing the English Language.
At the Infant and Nursery School children have a daily phonic session called ‘Letters and Sounds’ which is very structured, active and is enjoyable too. Children are supported as they make connections between phonic sounds they use to read and how to use sounds to write
