Phonics & Reading

At Byley we use a systematic teaching of phonics to support children in learning to read and write.  As children progress in their phonic knowledge children will move on from learning letters and the sounds that they make, to using and applying this knowledge to read and write words, then into reading and writing sentences. We give the children the opportunity to use and apply their phonic learning through games and activities so that they then use this in their independent reading and writing work.

For a more detailed explanation of phonics please see the 'Parents Guide to Phonics' document attached below.
