Phonics and Reading

How we teach Phonics
At Broadwood, we teach phonics using 'Letters and Sounds', which is a detailed and systematic programme. This approach builds children's speaking and listening skills in their own right, as well as prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. The aim is that children become fluent readers by the age of seven. 
However, phonics interventions are embedded across the whole school, including Key Stage 2 to enable all children to secure learning gaps in phonics.
There are 6 phases altogether and ideally, children would be taught at the age appropriate phase. We ensure gaps in learning are identified across school (including Key Stage 2) and appropriate interventions are put in place.
Please see the attached document below for more detailed information on the 6 phases.
