Phonics

At Ashcott School we follow the guidance in the 'Letters and Sounds' document published by the DfE.  To support this approach we use the actions from a scheme known as 'Jolly Phonics'. There are some great phonics resources on the Espresso website - click here (a log-in can be obtained from the school office if you don't already have one). Please read the handout from the parents' phonics evening.

Some useful phonics websites are listed below.
