Programme and progress

We have adopted a rigorous, systematic programme that includes well-conceived and structured resources for teaching phonics, following the Phonics Bug program, which is taught from day 1.  Phonics Bug enables pupils to:

o Recognise, say and write all phonemes within each phase

o Apply and understand spelling patterns, e.g suffixes, prefixes, that are taught through all phases.

o Use their phonic knowledge to blend and segment phonetically decodable words.

o Use their phonic knowledge to read complex words and to recognise from sight ‘Tricky Words’ (High Frequency Words).

o Read with fluency for both pleasure and to retrieve information.

o Write clearly, accurately and coherently using phonic knowledge.
