Phonics and Reading at Langwith Bassett Junior Academy.


Langwith Bassett Junior Academy use the scheme Letters and Sounds to teach phonics across school. This is a systematic approach to the teaching of synthetic phonics and is a highly successful way of developing children’s reading, spelling and language skills.


How is Phonics taught?

There are daily phonics lessons that are fast paced and repetitive so children make lots of progress, quickly.  All phonics lessons are structured the same, meaning all children receive the same high-quality learning experiences. The progression of Phonics throughout Reception and Year 1 follows the structure below, with each phase covering a variety of sounds, tricky words and high frequency words.
