Early Reading and Phonics

Description

Langley Primary School in Oldbury has been identified by Sir Jim Rose as having excellent practice in phonics.

Teacher Helen Jones is teaching the reception and Year 1 class, using two techniques involving sound buttons and robot arms to help pronunciation. But is synthetic phonics just another fashion, and is there any evidence that it works?

Helen believes that it does work, but it can be complicated and she shares some useful tips for other teachers starting a synthetics phonics programme.
