Children are taught to read and spell using the Letters and Sounds phonics program.  Children progress through the phases throughout Nursery, Reception, Year One and Two.

Towards the end of Year One, most children will take part in the national 'Phonics Screening Check' which is designed to assess children's ability to blend phonemes.

In Year Two, children typically reach phase 6 and begin learning spelling patterns.
