We follow the National Curriculum ‘Letters and Sounds’ scheme of work. This follows 6 phases of spellings. When children come into Nursery they will begin at Phase 1 which deals mainly with Communication, Language and Literacy area of learning. In particular, it will support linking sounds and letters in the order in which they occur in words, and naming and sounding the letters of the alphabet. Children entering Phase Two will have experienced a wealth of listening activities, including songs, stories and rhymes. They will be able to distinguish between speech sounds and many will be able to blend and segment words orally.
