What is Phonics? Why your child needs to learn Phonics?
To read English successfully, your child needs to learn to turn words they see into sounds and make sense of these sounds. Its vitally important that children learn letter-sounds relationships because English uses letters or group of letters in the alphabet to match sounds.
For example, the sound k can spell as c, ck, ch or k.
Teaching your child to blend the sounds of letters together helps them interpret unknown or unfamiliar sounding words. For example, when a child is taught the sounds for the letters t, p, a and s, they can start to construct up the words: “tap”, “taps”, “pat”, “pats” and “sat”
Our phonics course is indispensable and forms the basis for all reading and spelling.

How does phonics work?
Our course is based on a proven, fun, and multi-sensory synthetic phonics method that gets children reading and writing from a young age. We teach your child sounds as oppose to alphabet. There are 42 letter sounds which are the building blocks for phonics needed to master the English language.
Your child will first learn small group if sounds related with written letters. So, for example, the ‘p’ makes a ppp sound, ‘a’ makes aaa sound and ‘t’ makes ttt sounds. Then, your child will be taught how to blend the sounds together to read the whole word. For example, p-a-t, your child will learn the sounds and then will start blending them together.
These are two of the five key skills that your child needs to master our phonics course:
Learning the letter sounds in Phonics
You child is taught the 42 main letter sounds. These include alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue. Our phonics course uses a multi-sensory approach to teach each letter sound combining with fun actions and stories.
Using different multi-sensory methods, your child will learn how to form and write letters. This will be taught along with the introduction of each letter sound.
Your child will be taught how to blend the sounds together to help them read and write new words.
Identifying sounds in words
Your child will be taught blending and segmenting simultaneously, your child will become familiar with forming and breaking down sounds within words.
Tricky words have unusual spellings, and your child will learn these separately. Introducing the common tricky words early increases reading confidence.
