Hello everyone.

We will be running a phonics workshop this year– date and time to be confirmed in due course and we will be sending parents a letter to confirm arrangements.

In the meantime why don’t you watch our phonic videos that we filmed last year, that give lots of information on how we teach phonics at Gaddesby Primary School.

If you do have any burning questions, or would like further information on phonics, please email your child’s class teacher. We are always available to help!

EYFS Phonics

At this time of year we would generally be inviting you in for a phonics workshop. Unfortunately, this year, that isn’t possible, so here is a little video on what phonics is and how we teach phonics at Gaddesby Primary School.

KS1 Phonics


Phonics Workshop PowerPoint Updated– Attached is the PowerPoint that we would generally deliver to parents. Contained within are little games that you can have a go at, at home. There is also a list of some handy websites that you can access at home.

Please watch this video to help you in your articulation of your sounds at home. Dirty sounds– put them back in!

Twinkl PowerPoint-– if you would like a little extra bedtime reading, this PowerPoint is incredibly useful in providing you with more information on phonics.


Count the phoneme game— how many phonemes can you spot?

Phonic information crib sheet— Attached is a document that summarises some of the information on our video for you.

Year 1 Phonics Screening— At the end of Year 1 your child will complete a phonics screening. This is nothing to worry about and we do lots of practising before the screen takes place. ​
