Reading and Phonics

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 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.
