St Paul's C of E Primary

Phonics & Spelling

Phonics is taught daily from Reception to Year 2 and then reviewed from years 3 to 6. In 2021 we reviewed our Phonics programme and have now invested in the 'Rocket Phonics' scheme of work which all of the teaching and support staff received training on. The programme teaches new letter sounds over a longer period allowing children to have the time to learn them and explore different ways of using them in words for both reading and writing. This then links to our Key Stage 2 spelling programme 'No Nonsense Spellings'.
