Jolly Phonics

Jolly Phonics teaches children essential literacy skills using a complete synthetic phonics programme, validated by the DfE. It is widely recognised as the most effective way to teach children to read and write in English. This 7-year scheme takes children beyond phonics and integrates spelling, punctuation and grammar too! A range of decodable readers are available to get children reading early and fluently, including beginners reading books and a further 5 levels of readers in 3 lively series. Teaching is multi-sensory and active with fun actions, stories and songs.
