Most teachers agree that a systematic, synthetic phonics programme is the most effective way of teaching the majority of young children to read. There is huge emphasis on assessment, teaching and learning at Key Stage 1, but what hasn't received much attention is what happens to children before the age of 5, or after the age of 6 if children still haven't 'got it'.
We've spent a huge amount of time speaking to the experts - you - and have selected from your experience of what really works the best range of resources for teaching synthetic phonics
in a fast, systematic way. What we haven't ignored though, is the scaffolding
required to get children to a place where they are ready for phonics - so you will find lots of resources to develop their speaking and listening skills
, ensuring their phonemic awareness is well developed and that they are truly ready to learn.
Our comprehensive phonics range, of which many resources are available for purchase through the government matched funding scheme, support any phonics programme you have implemented in school from Jolly Phonics to Vowel Sounds. To offer a comprehensive range we have been sure to cover the following areas: rhyme, alphabet, spelling and phonic readers.
