Tow Law Millennium School follows the Letters and Sounds Scheme for phonics teaching. The Read, Write Inc. mantra for letter formation is used alongside this to develop children’s segmenting skills.
Once the children have started learning phonics, they each receive a reading book. We ask parents to look at, read and discuss the book with their child.
As they progress through the phonics scheme and become better readers, they move onto the Accelerated Reader books. The children complete a reading journal at the start of the week and then complete a reading comprehension quiz based on the book. They then complete as many quizzes as they are ready for in that week.

The staff in school use several websites that contain lots of activities and games linked to the phonic phases. Here are some useful websites that will help you support your child with phonics:
