Phonics in Reception /KS1

In KS1 we use a phonics resource published by Oxford Reading Tree, called Floppy Phonics.   It is a synthetic phonics scheme which teaches children to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme which enables pupils to start to read at the age of five and become fluent by the age of seven.

This scheme is vibrant and interesting for pupils as it introduces them to the characters Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy the dog.  The children read books related to the sounds they are learning and complete relevant spellings.
