Phonics from EYFS – Y6

‘The best phonics program is one that is deliberately integrated with reading and writing instruction’ (Ehri, 2003:16).  Please use these documents alongside your chosen phonics programme to support spelling from EYFS – Year 6. I teach, train teachers to teach, and wholeheartedly recommend Sounds-Write linguistic phonics.
