At St Maria Goretti, we encourage your child to have a love of reading and sharing books. We deliver a daily phonics session in synthetic phonics and regularly listen to the children read. We use both Letters and Sounds, Jolly Phonics and Read Write Inc for a multi-sensory approach to our teaching. We aim to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.
Please see below the documents for the order of sounds taught and rhymes, Jolly Phonics video with the songs we sing and other resources.
