Phonics in Robins



As a school we use the phonics programme 'Phonics International' to teach letter sounds. The above image shows the order of sounds that we follow for our class teaching. In reception we aim to cover units 1 to 3 and the beginning of unit 4. We teach 4 sounds a week (Monday to Thursday). For each sound there is a sound action which your child will be able to share with you at home. We encourage the children to use the sound action when saying the sound. 

Watch the video below to see the correct way to pronounce each sound
