Phonics involves matching the sounds of spoken English with individual letters or groups of letters. For example, the sound k can be spelled as c, k, ck or ch. Teaching children to blend the sounds of letters together helps them decode unfamiliar or unknown words by sounding them out. Please do not teach your children to sing or say the alphabet. Children should be learning the sound of each letter.
At St Mary's we use the Read, Write Inc. Scheme to teach Phonics to children.
