How do we teach phonics?

In Romiley Primary School we use the Monster Phonics scheme alongside our own Phonics teaching from Letters and Sounds. The scheme is a whole-class Systematic Synthetic Phonics Scheme for children in Reception and Key Stage 1. It is also used as a ’keep up’ intervention in Key Stages 1 and 2. 

The scheme encourages the children to have a positive attitude to their learning as they love the characters who introduce the new sounds in a child friendly way. Each sound is colour coded with a character who supports the children as they work building resilience in a structured way. This helps the children to commit these phonemes, graphemes and spelling patterns to long term memory and in turn equips our children with the ability to phonetically decode and to have spelling strategies later on.

Monster Phonics also has a paid for app that you can download at home if you wish to support your child further:
