Phonics is the basis for reading and writing skills. It develops the skills needed to hear sounds in words and match them to the corresponding visual representation. It gives children the skills needed to use their knowledge of the alphabet to support their reading and their writing as they move through school. Reading and writing are like a code: phonics is teaching the child to crack the code.
In Nursery, we teach phonics using a range of games, songs, rhymes, activities and resources. At Faith we try to keep phonics as fun and interactive as possible!
