Phonics is recommended as the first strategy that children should be taught in helping them learn to read. Phonics runs alongside other teaching methods to help children develop vital reading skills and give them a real love of reading – hopefully for life.

At Stockham School, we follow the Twinkl phonics programme for the teaching of phonics. This is a government validated phonics scheme of work based on Letters and Sounds, a resource published by the Department for Education which consists of six phases, or levels.
