We aim to deliver high quality phonics teaching which secures the crucial skills of word recognition that, once mastered, enables children to read fluently and automatically. At Barford Primary, we use the Monster Phonics scheme to achieve this.
Phonics is taught daily and planned carefully to meet the needs of all pupils in a class. Within the phonics program, children are given word work strategies that will enable them to become fluent readers and confident writers. As children progress through the school, the emphasis will be duly given to the National Curriculum spelling and grammar expectations.
