At Greenfield Primary school, we are passionate about ensuring all children become confident and enthusiastic readers and writers. We follow a coherently planned sequence of lessons that supports the effective teaching of phonics within EYFS, KS1 and, where appropriate, KS2. We recognise the importance of teaching a systematic, synthetic phonics programme to build children’s speaking and listening skills, as well as to prepare them for learning to read quickly and skilfully. It has a high priority throughout EYFS and KS1. Learners are systematically taught the relationship between sounds and the graphemes which represent them. The teaching approach is visual, auditory and kinaesthetic to appeal to all learning styles; therefore, increasing the likelihood of success.
