Briar Hill Infant School


Mrs Padro is our Phonics Lead


Children learn and recognise speech sounds (phonemes) and letter shapes (graphemes) in our daily phonics lessons. These lessons are progressive and practical, providing children with opportunities to say, hear, read, recognise and write sounds which they can then apply when reading and writing more independently. We use the well-sequenced and systematic 'Letters and Sounds Phonics Scheme' to teach daily phonics and tricky words (those words that are not decodable such as 'the' and 'me') from September in Reception. Spelling patterns and rules are also taught in line with 2014 National Curriculum Expectations for children Year 1 and Year 2.
