At Darley Dene, we teach phonics following the DfES Letters and Sounds scheme, combined with the Jolly Phonic pictures, stories, actions and songs.


We start in Nursery and Reception by teaching the children to orally blend and segment words before they learn to read and write the letters. See the video below which shows an example of how this is taught.
