Rocket Phonics


Early Reading and Phonics
In the EYFS Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, the pupil’s phonological awareness and phonic knowledge are developed through the Rocket Phonics programme. Phonics is taught every day in school from Nursey to Year 2. Our Rocket Phonics scheme has been validated by the DFE. This new scheme uses on-screen reading books and all the activities have a clear focus developing the children's reading skills. Our "Reading Planet", reading scheme, runs alongside this scheme ensuring that the your child's reading book relates to the phonics level they are on. Please see the film above. 


Below is a film about saying the sounds correctly. It is really important that you teach your child the correct sounds at home so they don't become confused.
