Silver End Academy follows the Phonics Scheme 'The Song of Sounds'.
What is the ' Song of Sounds'?
- Multi-sensory with kinaesthetic, auditory and visual activities that reinforce skills through a variety of learning styles.
Song is integral to the programme to help children remember every phoneme, a highly active approach with whole-body actions and lots of games to aid learning.
Carefully differentiated, contains support and challenge tips to cater for every child in the classroom.
Brings phonics to life with a fresh, lively hands-on approach to teaching phonics with engaging activities that reinforce learning.
How does it work?
Song of Sounds has a song at its heart that teaches children all of the phonemes necessary to read and write English successfully. The phonics scheme is divided into 3 stages (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) to build on each stage of learning. Each week has 4 short daily sessions and a longer consolidation session at the end of the week to put phonic skills into practice.
