Early Reading and Phonics Policy(opens in new tab)

At Christ the King we use the comprehensive synthetic phonics programme, Floppy’s Phonics Sounds and Letters, developed by phonics expert Debbie Hepplewhite to systematically teach and practise Letters and Sounds.

The Sounds and Letters resources are fully matched to the DfES Letters and Sounds phonics programme and are further supported in school by Floppy’s Phonics Fiction and Non-Fiction reading books.

Floppy’s Phonics stories enable your children to improve their word recognition skills and language comprehension. They fit in with our existing Oxford Reading Tree stories enabling your child to build confidence by providing opportunities to practise decoding skills within a familiar setting.
