We use Letters and Sounds phonics scheme in the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with its initial focus on developing speaking and listening skills, leading to segmenting and blending words. Phonics is part of rich play based curriculum for children to become effective readers. Our children are taught phonics everyday with children starting on phase 1 in Nursery and expected to be secure in phase 4 by the end of the Reception year.
Interventions are put in a place from an early stage for those children who may need extra help.
To encourage reading at home, we deliver phonics workshops for parents and carers. During the sessions we display and demonstrate how we use some of our resources and materials at Tarbiyyah Early Years.
Parents are also invited into the classroom weekly to take part of phonics and reading sessions.
