Here at St. Cuthbert's we use the Read Write Inc. synthetic system for phonics. It is taught every day in Reception and Key Stage 1. During the phonics session, children are taught the phonemes (what the letters sound like) and the graphemes (what they look like). Then, children are taught how to blend and segment these for reading and spelling.
