Reading & Phonics

Phonics are learned daily at EYFS and Key Stage 1.

At Netheravon All Saints we believe that reading is a key to all learning.

One method of learning to read is from memorising sight words however, this method does not work for all.

Secure phonic knowledge is a method which enables us to read the code of text but it is only part of the story in successful reading. The complex activity of reading does involve decoding letters to make words, but more importantly entails translating those words into a message that has meaning.
