Bug Club Phonics
At Woodcroft Academy we use the Pearson Phonics Bug programme to help your child learn to read. The programme follows an approach of synthesising phonemes associated graphemes a child sees; or put another way learning to read by blending sounds. The sounds associated with the letters a child sees. The programme is the product of extensive research on effective ways to teach children how to read.

Grapheme/Phoneme (letter/sound) correspondences for reading and spelling are taught in a specified order. 'Tricky words' that cannot be decoded using phonics and need a whole word approach are also taught systematically throughout.
