At Elfrida School we follow 'Essential Letters and Sounds' DFE approved scheme to teach phonics. Phonics is the process that ensures children have the skills to break words into a sound system, building letter and word recognition. Children learn to segment words to help support their spelling ability and to blend sounds together to read words. Once phonics are learnt and children can read fluently, they can then develop other reading skills such as comprehension and acquiring knowledge in order to access the whole curriculum.
