Phonics

Phonics teaching is given a high priority at Norbridge. It is are taught to all Year 1 and FS children every day for 20 minutes. Year Two children who did not pass the end of Year 1 Phonics Screening Check complete a daily intervention to ensure they are adequately prepared for the retake at the end of Year 2. Children are regularly assessed to ensure they are accessing learning at the correct level. The children are taught in ability groups to learn the skills they need to move to the next level. In lessons they learn how letters link to sounds, blending sounds to read and segmenting letters to write words and sentences. These can then be applied to other areas of their learning. Lessons are well planned and challenge children to make good progress.  

Phonics lessons follow the Letters and Sounds programme, and our FS children learn new sounds through Jolly Phonics and Bug Club. We use a wide variety of resources to enhance lessons and make phonics fun, that is how we feel children learn best.  Parents and children can access the Phonics Bug website to practice their phonics at home.
