Phonics at Brinsworth Howarth Primary School

Phonics is a way of teaching children to read skilfully and quickly. Children are taught the corrospondances between sounds (phonemes) and letters. They identify and blend different letter sounds and letter combinations together to make a word.Through this, children take the first important steps in learning to read. They can also use this knowledge to begin to spell new words they hear. A systematic approach is taken to teaching synthetic phoncs at Brinsworth Howarth Primary School. The children are taught the simplest sounds first. This will then progress all the way through to the most complex combinations of letters.
