At New Ford Academy, we believe that for all our children to become fluent readers and writers, phonics must be taught through a systematic and structured phonics programme.


We use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised to plan and provide daily engaging phonics lessons. In phonics, we teach children that the letters of the alphabet represent a different sound, that these can be used in a variety of combinations and are put together to make words. The children learn to recognise all of the different sounds and combinations that they might see when they are reading or writing.


Phonics is delivered daily through short and interactive sessions which engaged and motivate the children.


Our phonics lessons provide an exciting, challenging and fun environment to learn reading and spelling patterns which is essential for their early reading and writing skills.


We use a variety of resources and approaches to support our children's learning.
