The teaching of synthetic phonics equips children with the skills to become fluent readers and confident spellers. From Reception children are taught how to break words into their smallest units of sound and learn how these sounds are represented by individual letters and letter combinations. Systematic teaching using the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme, ensures that children learn the decoding strategies needed to blend sounds together when reading and to segment words into their separate sounds when spelling.

The attached information is designed to support parents and carers with information based on the teaching of phonics through 'Letters and Sounds.'
