Learning Today for a Better Tomorrow
Phonics at St Barnabas C of E Primary School
All children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 have daily phonics sessions. Phonics is a crucial part of Foundation Stage and Key Stage One as it gives children confidence and helps them become independent readers and writers.
St Barnabas C of E Primary School is a Universal school for the Knowledge Transfer Centre scheme for Phonics and Reading. This is a project for phonics and reading based on Letters and Sounds developed by Literacy Consultant Ann Smallberger.
Children also learn to read and spell tricky words; words which don’t rely on phonics. Children at St Barnabas are excited to read and write new words and sentences and enjoy having these challenges.
Children in Year 2 start in September by recapping phase 5 of phonics before moving on spelling rules and patterns.
