Phonics at Swing Gate Infant School and Nursery


At Swing Gate Infant School we follow the DfE Letters and Sounds programme, learning letter sounds (phonemes) in specific phases. Children begin learning Phonics in Nursery, starting to work on Phase 1 Oral and Listening skills. They then progress through the school and through the Phases from Phase 1 to Phase 6.

Phonics is taught daily in school from Nursery to Year 2.
