At Beaudesert, the children in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and, where required, children in KS2 follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme, along with the supporting signs and rhymes of Read, Write, Inc:
Reception Classes – Phases 2-4
Year 1 – Phase 5
Year 2 – Phase 6
Phonics is taught discretely throughout the Foundation Stage and KS1. Letters and Sounds is a powerful teaching tool which
ensures that young children will be well-placed to read and spell words with fluency and confidence by the time they
reach the end of KS1. Read, Write, Inc signs and rhymes have proved to be beneficial to many of our children, in learning the sounds in a fun and creative way.
The ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme teaches synthetic phonics and is available to parents on request.
