Phonics is predominantly taught in reception and key stage 1. We follow letters and sounds and have 5 lessons a week. The children are given a rich and varied diet of games and activities to help them make their way through the phases.
Our groups are not set, the children progress when they are ready and have extra support when needed. ICT plays a vital part in the teaching of phonics in Gipsey Bridge. This adds another dimension to our lessons which help create confident and well equipped little readers and writers.
