At Great Staughton we use Storytime phonics. The Storytime phonics actions and rhymes are a fantastic way for children to remember the sounds as well as promote a love of learning through stories! Everyday the phonics fairy visits us and leaves us a new sound in the phonics bag (sometimes there is fairy dust so we know she has been). Each sound is connected to a book which features the sound which is read the children.
