At Larkrise Primary School Pearson Bug Club is used to teach synthetic phonics.
A graduated approach is used and children begin phonics as soon as they enter Reception class. Phonics is taught daily through a systematic approach. Children are taught within their class and any additional support required is delivered in small groups.
In Reception, children begin by developing an awareness of sounds through stories, rhymes and games. They quickly learn the links between individual letters and their sounds. There are 44 different sounds to be learnt, and again these are taught in a systematic way throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1.
