Phonics at Our Lady Star of the Sea
We use the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme.
All children in Early Years and Year 1 do 30-minute phonics lessons every day. In Year 2, all children do thirty minutes of phonics or spellings lessons every day. Lessons are tailored to the children's needs and children are assessed regularly.
Those children who do not pass the phonics screening check continue to have phonics lessons in subsequent years.
