What is Phonics?

Phonics is a method of learning to read that is taught from the beginning of Early Years.  Synthetic phonics is a way of teaching reading.  Your child will be taught two crucial things when they are learning to read using synthetic phonics:

  1. How sounds are represented by written letters. For example they will be taught that the letter m represents an ‘mmmm’ sound.
  2. How sounds can be blended together to make words.  For example, they will be taught that the sounds of the letters ‘c-a-t’ blend together to make the word cat.

Which phonics program do we follow at Field Lane?

At Field Lane we follow ‘Floppy’s phonics’ which is closely linked to letters and sounds and uses the characters from Oxford Reading Tree.

Biff, Chip, Kipper and their friends and family including Floppy the dog have made Oxford Reading Tree the UK’s most popular reading scheme used by 80% of primary schools in the UK

Floppy’s Phonics is a rigorous, easy to use systematic synthetic teaching programme for early reading and writing success.

We use interactive phonics lessons and activities to teach sounds, blending, grapheme-phoneme correspondence, letter formation and pronunciation to the whole class, groups or for individual practice.
