Letters and Sounds is the programme we use at Holy Cross to support the systematic teaching of phonics. Children begin the Letters and Sounds programme at the start of Reception year and continue across Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2). Our phonics programme is separated into six phases – your child’s teacher will be able to tell you which phase your child is currently working on. On this page you will be able to find links to information and resources from an external websites for each phase.
There is a brief explanation of what is taught and a selection of resources (word cards, games & record sheets) which you can use to support your child’s learning at home. If you require any further support, please come into school and speak with your child’s class teacher or our Phonics Lead, Mrs McDowall.
