Phonics at Kelvedon Hatch
At Kelvedon Hatch we follow Bug Club Phonics which is a fun and child centred approach to teaching phonics. The programme is a balanced approach to the teaching of reading using systematic synthetic phonics.
Children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 have a daily phonics session which includes four key elements: teach, practise, apply and assess. Children are given Bug Club Phonics decodable books to read at home that link to the sounds they are learning that week. We teach Phonics using interactive videos, flash cards, robot arms and whiteboards.
