We follow Letters & Sounds in our approach to Phonics with bespoke plans created for every phase. Our end of year expectations are:
End of pre-school – secure phase 1
End of reception – secure phase 3
End of year 1 – secure phase 5
These are floor standards and many of our children are working at a higher level than this. All children take home a phonics only book specific to the sounds that they have been taught until they are secure to phase 5 phonics.
