At Paradise Primary School the teaching of phonics is highly prioritised and is taught every day.

A synthetic phonics approach is adopted through the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme and Jolly phonics actions are used to support the children’s memory. Letters & Sounds’ is the government programme for teaching phonics and high frequency words.
Synthetic phonics is the process of sounding out the individual sounds in an unknown word and then blending these sounds together to read the word. The scheme teaches the sounds in an order which allows them to quickly begin to put sounds together to read words.
