At St Margaret’s CE Primary School we use the Letters and Sounds Phonics Scheme. Children in Reception work on Phases 1,2 and 3 which introduces them to the letters of the alphabet as well as some alternative spelling choices. It also supports children to blend for reading and segment for spelling. In Year 1 children work on Phases 4 and 5 which prepare them for the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test by learning a whole range of alternative spelling choices.
