Phonics is a method of teaching reading and writing by developing the learners' phonemic awarenesss. The goal of phonics is to enable beginning readers to decode new written words by sounding them out, or in phonics terms, blending the sound-spelling patterns.
It is important that children are supported with their phonics at home. We recommend spending 5 - 10 minutes each day working together on the different sounds.

Bug Club is a whole-school reading programme designed for use at Foundation, KS1 and KS2. It is the first phonics-based reading programme to join books with an online reading world to teach children to read.
All children at Topcliffe have access to a bugclub reading account.
Please speak to your child's class teacher for their log in details.
