At Holy Trinity School we teach phonics daily for 20 minutes. The school follows the scheme Letters and Sounds supported by Cued Articulation. In Reception and Year 1 the children work through 5 phases of phonics. By the time the children have reached Year 2 the children will continue with Letters and Sounds phase 6 and use phonics to support for spelling.
We follow a lesson plan that: introduces a new sound, revisits previous sounds, practices new/old sounds and words (blending and segmenting words), applies sounds learnt and assesses what the children have learnt.
