At Billingborough Primary we teach children phonics using the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised phonics scheme, supported by the Collins Big Cat phonics books, which directly support our scheme.
There are 26 letters in the alphabet which make 44 sounds and over different 100 ways of spelling them. Phonics teaches children to read letters, words and sentences accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step. Children are taught synthetic phonics in a set order and will revisit sounds and learn to use these to blend to make a word. Phonics is predominantly taught in Reception and Key Stage One, but can also be continued into Key Stage Two where necessary. Children in our Nursery class will enjoy pre-phonics activities, supporting the skills they will need when starting phonics in Reception.
