Fast Track Phonics
The teaching of phonics and word level skills takes place on a daily basis during SFA lessons. Phonics is simply the code that turns written langauge into spoken language and vice versa. It is the vital initial step in teaching children how to read but it is far from the whole picture. Phonics will only work within an environment where both speaking and listening are highly valued. This is certainly the case within a Success for All lesson.
Pupils phonemic awareness is developed using games, puppets, pictures and rhymes. Sounds and taught and reviewed every day, ensuring fast paced progress.
The week by week details of the phonemes taught are detailed in the document below and classteachers would welcome any questions from parents regarding the lessons each week.
In year 1, children are tested using a statutory government screening test designed to check your child’s phonic knowledge. Children are re tested in year 2 if they do not reach the required standard.
