At St Michael's, we teach the Letters and Sounds synthetic phonics programme every day from Reception through to Year 2. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right, as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. Every child completes a statutory phonics screening check in Year 1. Please see our ‘Key Information’ page for details of our children’s excellent results in the phonics screening.
