‘Welcome to our valley. We are proud to grow here together’


In Nursery we learn phase 1 phonics.  The purpose of Level 1 is to develop children's listening and communication skills, including their vocabulary, to prepare them for reading and writing in the next Phase/level.  The emphasis during Phase 1 is to get children attuned to the sounds around them and ready to begin developing oral blending and segmenting skills.



Supersonic Phonic Friends 



We follow the Supersonic Phonic Friends programme when teaching Phonics.  The website states "this programme is a fully systematic, synthetic phonic approach ranging from the simple to the complex spellings of the alphabetic code. Supported by their Supersonic Phonic friends, this approach will ensure children develop confidence and apply each skill to their own reading and writing."


Below you will find a link to the parental subscription for you to join in the adventure yourselves at home for a small monthly fee.
