At Hill Top  ‘Letters & Sounds’ is the chosen accredited programme used to teach phonics, high frequency words and to support early reading development. The ‘Letters and Sounds’ Programme is split into 6 phases:

  • Phase 1 is introduced in the Nursery
  • Phases 2 and 3 are introduced in Reception
  • Phases 4 and 5 are introduced in Year 1
  • Phase 6 is introduced in Year 2.

In EYFS and KS1 your child will be taught phonics every day.  Alongside the teaching of phonics, every child will be provided with daily opportunities to apply their phonic knowledge and skills in reading and spelling.

This information will give you an idea of what is expected at the phase your child is working within and how you can support their learning at home.
