At Great Staughton we use a combination of Letters and Sounds and the Jolly Phonics scheme. The Jolly Phonics actions and songs are a fantastic way for children to remember the sounds as well as promote a love of learning! Letters and Sounds provide the structure as well as a variety of ideas for activities to consolidate and extend learning.
