Bromet Primary School Excellence, Enjoyment and Achievement for All

Phonics

Intent 

 

Our number one aim is to teach every child to read and to gain a true love of reading.  We develop fluency and accuracy in our phonics and guided reading sessions. We also aim to develop good comprehension. Their skills are important for everyday life and to support their journey in Bromet. 

 

 

Implementation

Here at Bromet Primary School, we teach systematic synthetic phonics in the context of the ‘Monster Phonics’ programme. We use the set order in which graphemes and tricky words etc. are introduced. All staff have access to the Monster Phonics programme which shares detailed lessons plans and on the day interventions for those children who may need extra support. Phonics is taught everyday in EYFS and KS1 with interactive and fast pace lessons used to engage the children.

Cool Blue makes the long oo sound and colours all of these graphemes blue. Listen to his song about his job at the zoo. Jump and clap when you hear an oo word. Then cut and paste the oo words. How many can you remember? Can you write them in the colour-code?

Impact

 

As a result of quality first phonics teaching, children make continued progress from their starting points. The majority are ready for the next stage in their education as they transfer through Early Years, Key Stage 1 and into Key Stage 2. Teachers provide reading interventions in place for those children who may still require help with decoding strategies i Key Stag 2. 

 

Children  in Bromet enjoy class story times and foster a love of reading, due to their growing success in reading fluency.
