Essential Letters and Sounds

 

                       

We are incredibly proud to present Essential Letters and Sounds, a programme that has been in development over the last 18 months, based on our aim that every child will learn to read and love to read.

 

Our programme is rigorous, engaging and supports teachers to ensure that the lowest attaining children keep up rather than ‘catch up’. Feedback from our pilot schools has been phenomenal. Children are making accelerated progress and they tell us their favourite lesson is phonics. Teachers feel empowered and love teaching our programme!

 

Through our work as one of the Department for Education’s English Hubs, we have developed a way of teaching Letters and Sounds to ensure that all children are learning to read well and making speedy progress. Essential Letters and Sounds provides lesson plans, interactive whiteboard resources, supporting worksheets, mnemonics and rhymes, assessment documents and a complete training package for all members of staff.

 

Essential Letters and Sounds aligns with a large number of texts from one of the market-leading publishers, that will already be in use at most schools. Schools will be able to use these seamlessly to support the phonics instruction our programme offers.

 

With serious concerns about falling literacy levels due to recent lockdowns and increasing disparity, our scheme combines continuous and reactive assessment with robust interventions to ensure all children reach their reading potential.

“…it has been amazing to witness the joy on the children's faces as the Phonics flips load on screen and to hear words of excitement and the expression of joy from 'I love Phonics' to 'yay!' come from the children themselves”

H Stevens, Class Teacher

 

 

 “The consistency in the lessons, with the repetition and practice, have contributed to our highest phonics screen ever with 96% passing.

However, the biggest success has been listening to the children's enthusiasm, and seeing the high engagement with their phonics lessons and subsequently with their reading.”
