At Millbrook, reading is at the heart of everything we do and the basis of reading is Phonics. We use The Floppy’s Phonics programme to teach Phonics. This teaches the letter-sound correspondences of the English alphabetic code explicitly and comprehensively for reading and spelling.
It includes the characters of Floppy the dog, Biff, Chip and Kipper and their family and friends, which engages children fully for the Phonics teaching and learning, vocabulary enrichment and language comprehension.
In Reception to Year 2, children have discrete, daily Phonics sessions where they are introduced to new phonemes, explore, practise and revise previous learning and have plenty of opportunities to apply the knowledge they have.
Phonics interventions continue into KS2 when and where appropriate.
If anyone would like any help or advice with supporting their child with Phonics, please contact me and I’ll be more than happy to help!
Mrs Twine, Phonics Lead.
