Phonics

PHONICS is a systematic approach to teaching letter sounds and combinations of letter sounds as well as support for spelling. At Well Lane Primary School we follow 'Letters and Sounds' which is our main resource for teaching phonics. By using this approach children are taught phonics on a daily basis where they are encouraged to apply their knowledge through READING and WRITING as well as through the other areas of the curriculum. Lessons in Phonics are INTERACTIVE and PRACTICAL. Each day children have the opportunity to review their previous learning, learn a new sound or spelling pattern and PRACTISE and APPLY what they have learnt. Children are provided with opportunities to play PHONIC GAMES, have FUN and to CELEBRATE their achievements.
