Teaching & Learning Phonics

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.

The link below takes you to the Jolly Phonics website page where you can hear the sounds.  Within this page there is also a link to a YouTube clip where you can watch the sounds being said.Jolly PhonicsReading at home is essential to ensure children make good progress, not only in reading but in writing too.  Mrs Taylor, Mrs Tugwell and Paula, our Pre-schools’ Lead 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..Phonics WorkshopLetter Formation
