At Lavenham, we use a combination of the ‘Letters and Sounds’ and ‘Jolly Phonics’ programmes to teach phonics. 

Reception children will cover Phases 2, 3 and 4, while Year 1 children will consolidate Phase 4 and then move on to Phase 5. 


Please explore the links below to find out more. There are lots of useful resources which will help you support your child at home, including videos which show how to pronounce each phoneme (sound) correctly.
