Phonics - Letters and Sounds

23rd March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

We have received some useful information from the English Hub regarding phonics and reading. All the information is now available on the website. There are reading ideas and links to free online books and websites.

Bitham Brook follows the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme for phonics from Reception through to Year 2. A copy of the programme has also been added to the website. You can also visit for more information and resources. Please avoid many of the phonics websites that have been advertised on the internet, as they may not support the lessons we have been delivering in school.

If your child is in Reception or Key Stage 1, Phonics Play is offering free access to all their phonics games. We play many of these in school so your child will be familiar with how to play them. Please visit . To login, use the username: march20 and the password: home. (As a guide: Reception children can play the phase 2 and 3 games, Year 1 children phase 4, 5a and 5b and Year 2 children all the phase 5 and 6 games).

We hope to receive more information and resources in the near future from the English Hub, which we will then add to the website.

Thank you for your support

Mrs Leighton
