Phonics is the primary and most effective way that children learn to read. At Queensmead Primary Academy we use the principles of synthetic phonics during EYFS and into KS1. Children from FS1 begin a systematic daily session of phonics which continues up to Year 2 and beyond if a child is judged to need further support. Teachers follow Queensmead phonics planning to deliver daily or twice daily sessions.
