We use lots of different approaches with phonics teaching to ensure the children get a fantastic range of activities to suit all the different learning styles. The main scheme we use as our core is Big Cat Phonics which then leads the children into our core reading scheme:

From early phonics development to fluency, Collins Big Cat is a whole-school programme that provides complete support for primary reading. It supports the delivery of effective phonics with fully decodable books, expertly aligned to Letter and Sounds fostering the love of reading right from the start.

Additional resources:

Letters and Sounds,  Twinkl


Letters and Sounds

Parents Online Resources from Little Wandel

Useful resources and prompt sheets for the introduction of the sounds throughout the reception year. This scheme is closley linked to the Big Cat scheme and is a revised version of Letters and Sounds
