At St Teresa’s we use ‘Letters and Sounds’ for the teaching of phonics in YN, YR and Y1 (including the order in which phonemes are introduced). This is supported by resources (including some of the early reading books) from Read, Write Inc, which help to ensure consistency of techniques and strategies.

Phonics will continue to be taught in Year 2 although the focus will change to a greater emphasis on application of phonic knowledge to increasingly accurate spelling.
