Phonics is an integral element of your child's literacy journey and is one of the key components of learning to read with fluency. It teaches children how to decode letters into their respective sounds, allowing children to read unfamiliar words independently. Keep in mind that most words are unfamiliar to early readers, even if they have knowledge of the word. At Mitchell Brook, we use a fun, engaging programme called Monster Phonics that follows the teaching sequence of Letters & Sounds from Nursery, up through Reception and Key Stage 1.
For further information about phonics and the Monster Phonics scheme, including videos of single sounds and digraphs (two letters that make one sound), click here for our Phonics curriculum page.
We have put together a list of useful resources below for you to use at home with your child to help support them.
