Phonics

Phonics

At Millbrook we use the phonics resource – Letters and Sounds. It aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read, by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. 

 

In year 1, we cover phase 5. Which prepares your child for the phonics screening which takes place in June. This year, there will be more emphasis on revising all phases, due to the disruption to your child's education last year.
