At Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy we use LCP for the teaching and learning of phonics. This is a structured programme that takes children through their phonics learning from making and hearing sounds in the early years, through learning 44+ phonemes during Reception and Year 1, leading onto learning more complex spelling strategies in Year 2.
There are lots of websites that you can use with your children to support their phonics learning at home. Each week, we will update you below on which sounds we are looking at. We will also try to add some videos of each sound to help at home, sometimes of the children and sometimes from YouTube.

In Year 1 and Year 2, we are looking at 'u' and its alternative pronunciation, 'ow' and its alternative pronunciation, 'ie' and its alternative pronunciation, polysyllabic words and homographs.
