At Willow Tree Primary School we use a scheme called Speedy Phonics which has been planned using the government approved Letters and Sounds scheme for teaching Phonics. To support our teaching of phonics we also use Jolly Phonics in Reception to help support our pupils learning. For more information click on the link below to take you to the Letters and Sounds page.
We also use other websites to support our Phonics teaching such as Jolly Phonics and Phonics Play. Click on the links below for more information.
If you are unsure how to say the phonics sounds, then watch this video below.
A number of years ago the Government introduced the Year 1 Phonics screening. All children in Year 1 are given a phonics test, looking at the children’s ability to read phonemes and distinguish real words from non words. For more information on the Phonics Screening please click on the link below
For the academic year 2020/2021 the Phonics screening for Year 1 and some pupils in Year 2 will take place during the week of 7th June 2021.
