In Elmer class, pupils learn to read and write using the letters and sounds programme.
The Letters and Sounds programme teaches pupils letter sounds as opposed to letter names (the alphabet).
These sounds are practised daily in school and need to be practised as regularly, at home.
There are 6 phases and 100 High Frequency words. In Elmer class we start with phase 2 and work out way up to phase 3 and 4 which can all be seen below.
