What is Phonics?

Phonics is a method of teaching young children how to read and write. It helps children understand and identify different sounds in the English language. By learning the sounds of individual letters, children learn to decode the words they are reading, which in turn leads onto a better comprehension of which letters to use in their own writing.

In essence phonics demonstrates the relationship between the sounds of spoken language and the letters of written language.

There is a whole range of phonics programmes validated by the UK Department of Education for use in British Schools. Our songs are designed to work with them all and are a great, free, added resource to use in the classroom.
