Phonics is a very important part of teaching children to read. The children have 4 taught phonics sessions per week. We use ‘pure sounds’ with the children – this means when we say a sound we take off the ‘uh’ on the end. We don’t say ‘muh’ we say ‘mmm’ for ‘m’.

This link enables you hear the Pure Sounds.
