Phonics and Reading

Essential Letters and Sounds


Metheringham Primary School 

Following an update from the Department for Education around phonics teaching in schools, we have adopted a programme called ‘Essential Letters and Sounds’. Essential Letters and Sounds is a phonics programme based on Letters and Sounds (2007) which we have followed for many years. This phonics programme will support your children in making quick progress to become fluent and confident readers. Essential Letters and Sounds will change the way we deliver our daily phonics lessons and the focus of home school reading activities.
