Teaching Phonics in Early Years

The Early Years’ Teacher supports parents by sharing information about phonics and early reading, including an online webinar and drop-in sessions.

All of our early reading books are part of the Monster Phonics scheme and only include the sounds and high frequency words that the children have already been taught. In addition, pupils use the school library on a weekly basis and books are sent home for parents to share with their children for pleasure and to model reading.

Please view the following document to see the progression of phonics taught at St. Patrick’s.

The two links below illustrate how the sounds and associated actions are taught, which parents may find useful.
