Ways to Help Your Child with English

One of the ways we teach children to read is to develop their knowledge of letters and sounds, which is known as ‘synthetic phonics’. Our teachers have been trained by Lesley Clarke, a practising teacher and teacher-training consultant in phonics, who has set up a highly-regarded training programme.

Lesley has a very informative website that will help reinforce your child’s learning if you would like some guidance. Please click on this link.  Further information about the six phase teaching programme in letters and sounds can be found here:
