Phonics

At Moseley we are determined that every pupil will learn to read. As such, we recognise the importance of secure phonic knowledge and understanding and its direct impact on standards in writing, reading and spelling.  Across Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Key Stage One (KS1) we use Letters and Sounds for the systematic teaching of synthetic phonics. 

In EYFS and Key Stage One, phonics is taught whole-class. This is so all pupils are taught content appropriate for their age. In order to ensure no pupil falls behind, same day intervention takes place. Ongoing assessment of pupils' phonic progress identifies any child who is falling behind. If they do so, specific, targeted support is provided.

In order to ensure every child becomes a reader, we have clear expectations of pupils' phonic progress each term from Reception to Year 2. This can be found here.

Letter Recognition

This section will allow children to practice letter recognition. Fast recognition is very important for reading. The videos will allow children to practice saying the sound a letter makes.
