At Goldenhill Primary Academy we feel that Phonics is crucial for our children to develop a life long love of reading and is the key that opens up all the other subjects. At Goldenhill we use the Letters and Sounds programme to teach phonics. All our reading books are fully decodable and follow the sequence of our phonic programme. We ensure that the books children read are carefully matched to the letter-sound correspondences they have learnt, enabling them to confidently apply their phonic knowledge.
