Here at Torpoint Nursery and Infant School, we teach phonics through our own scheme.
It is split into six phases, from starting to learn about sounds in reception to becoming fluent readers.
The phonic approach encourages us to directly link letters (graphemes) to sounds (phonemes), and to teach children pure sounds like ah, b, k when encountering the alphabet (instead of letter names). So, children learn how to put sounds represented by letters or letter groups (like ch or igh) together to read words in a more straightforward way.
We use resources from Ruth Miskin’s Read Write Inc. scheme to support our phonics teaching and to help form letters correctly.
We have provided our phonics scheme, a variety of resurces and a range of videos to help you support your child.
