PHONICS AT ESKDALE

Stacking Blocks

MRS. L . LILLEY

Phonics Lead

We aim to teach high quality phonics to ensure the children have the best start possible in reading and writing.  Phonics is an essential part of learning to read and write. 

Good quality phonic teaching secures the skills of word recognition and decoding which allow children to read fluently.  This will result in children being able to read for pleasure, and then move onto children developing comprehension skills. 

 

We encourage repetition and consolidation, so that spelling becomes automatic.

These phonic skills need to be taught systematically in an interactive and exciting way and allow children to apply their phonic skills in all curriculum areas

PHONICS & READING INFORMATION

Phonics Training

 

Phonics training for parents in Early Years took place in school. Twelve parents attended to watch their child’s phonics lesson.

 

From the feedback:

100% found the training useful.

100% said they felt they now have a better understanding of how their child is learning to read and write.

100% said they would use ideas from the training to support their child at home.

 

Other comments included “Great lesson! Keep up the good work.”

“This will be useful for homework and reading.” “I found it very interesting.” “I now know how to pronounce all the sounds.”

CHILDREN'S READING BOOKS

Reading Books have been banded within stages 1-6. Each stage has been organised into sub-stages which corresponds to the graphemes which have been taught throughout our current scheme ‘Letters and Sounds.’

Each stage is organised into three sections and are based on an increase and security in phonic knowledge as pupils progress through the stages.

Books taken home  by children should consolidate what has already been taught, retained and secured.

SCHEMES

Some of these are used for whole school and some are used specifically for individual children.
