Phonics for reading

Song of Sounds

At Swiss Gardens we use a structured phonics programme called Song of Sounds.  It incorporates a fun interactive song to teach the sounds children need to be able to read and write. It is fast paced to ensure all children are exposed to the sounds quickly but also ensures there is revision time for the children to embed their learning. 

Nurturing a love of reading

At Swiss Gardens we believe phonics teaching is key to getting our children reading. From the moment that children enter the school they are immersed in print, both in their classroom environment and throughout the school. Children are encouraged to look at and share books and read all types of written text in their classroom.

Supporting the early reading journey

We believe learning to read early is an essential step for our children to be able to access the rest of our exciting curriculum. Our aim is for all children to read accurately and fluently. As parents your role in this is key. Please check out the following links as they will support you in supporting your child to learn and apply their phonics in their everyday reading and writing.

For further information about phonics and how you can support your child with phonics and early reading please spend some time reading these two documents.
