The subject lead for phonics at Darwen St James is Mrs Gonzalez.

Phonics is one of the most important building blocks when learning how to read.  It is the simple matching of written letters (graphemes) to sounds (phonemes).   These are then blended together to read words and, later on, captions and sentences.

We use  the DfES Letters and Sounds guidance as a basis for our teaching  throughout phases one to six.  Phonics is taught daily until each child is secure at Phase 6 Letters and Sounds.
