Phonics Curriculum Intent
Our Phonics programme at Ardley Hill is rigorous, engaging and fast paced with a clear focus on segmenting, blending, pure sounds, sound buttons and VAK opportunities with a particular emphasis on applying all of these skills to ensure the children’s learning is embedded.
A resilient approach to reading is nurtured and our pupils are encouraged to be aspirational when building on their reading skills. We set early and secure foundations to strengthen the effectiveness and impact of learning of reading across the school.
Our pupils are taught that learning to read develops a healthy mind, broadens horizons and firmly establishes a means to communicate.
