Phonics at Christ Church
Phonics across Foundation Stage and Key Stage One
At Christ Church, phonics is taught in Reception and Year 1 daily through whole class sessions. As a school, our phonics teaching follows Bug Club Phonics teaching programme.
In Reception class we teach from Phase 2 to Phase 4 across the academic year. In Year 1 we recap all of this learning before moving onto Phase 5 and in Year 2 children develop confidence with the spelling patterns in Phase 5 and progress onto the spelling and grammar requirements of the Year 2 National Curriculum. Class teachers regularly assess progress being made by individual children and additional support is given to individuals and groups where required. The Literary Curriculum that is the basis for our English lessons, further embeds the phonics learning in each lesson.
