Phonics is one of the most significant pathways to reading which opens the world of learning up to children in many ways. At Hoyle Court Primary School, our phonics practitioners are trained to deliver high quality phonics sessions which are precise and systematic. We use the Little Wandle programme which is appealing and engaging and most importantly has a great impact on pupil outcomes.

We also have a wide range of decodable texts which re matched to the different phonics phases. These texts further support and enhance children’s learning and begin to encourage a life-long love of reading.

The videos below provide more information about how phonics is taught in our school.
