In Giffard Park Primary School phonics is taught daily across each year group. These lessons are taught using the ‘Read Write Inc Programme’ which is split into individual phases. Children in Years 1 and 2 are taught phonics together in small groups lead by either a Teacher or TA. Children are grouped according to the phase level that is appropriate for them and working with children in a different year group allows them to challenge and learn from each other.
Children take home reading books which are closely matched to the phonics sounds that they have been learning within the sessions to ensure that they are able to feel successful in their reading at home.
