Phonics at Wednesbury Oak
Our Curriculum Implementation:
At Wednesbury Oak Academy we provide daily speaking and listening activities that are well matched to children’s developing abilities and interests, drawing upon observations and assessments to plan for progression and to identify children who need additional support.
Teachers at Wednesbury Oak Academy provide Phonic lessons that are active, fun and motivating, hence why our children love Phonics! Each lesson creates opportunities for children to read, write, and develop vocabulary and listening skills.
We follow the Letters and Sounds approach to phonics. Letters and Sounds is a systematic six-phase teaching programme designed to help practitioners and teachers teach children how the alphabet works for reading and spelling. It was published in April 2007 and has been widely distributed to local authorities, schools and settings.
