The Jolly Phonics scheme is used to teach phonics here at Christian Malford. Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. The 42 letter sounds are taught through actions and progresses to blending the sounds together to form words.
Reading at home is essential to ensure children make good progress, not only in reading but in writing too. Mrs Taylor, Mrs Tugwell and Mrs Jenkins ran a workshop for parents to explain how phonics is taught and how children can be supported at home. If you were unable to attend the workshop or need a reminder about the difference between a phoneme and a grapheme, you can access the presentation by clicking below.
