Phonics – Sounds Write
At Campsbourne we following the National Curriculum for Phonics which can be found here.
We believe that the teaching of phonics plays a key role in helping children learn to read, write and spell. We follow the Sounds Write phonics scheme which is a high-quality program endorsed by the DfE. Our aim is for the vast majority of children to be confident readers by the end of KS1. High quality phonics teaching enables children to decode new words confidently and independently and leads to improved understanding.
This will result in children being able to read for pleasure, undertake research and develop their comprehension skills. Sounds Write also teaches children how to spell words and this helps them to become confident writers.
