Phonics & Reading

At Merry Hill, our aim is for the children to enjoy reading and develop the ‘reading habit’.

We use the ‘Letters and Sounds‟ phonics scheme, to deliver high quality phonic teaching within a language rich curriculum that gives high standards in reading and writing. Letters and Sounds aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills and to prepare children for learning to read. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of four, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.
