At Harbinger, all children from Nursery to Year 2 have a daily, interactive phonics session. We follow the Tower Hamlets agreed systematic synthetic phonics program based on ‘Letters and Sounds’. Phonics lessons have the following structure: Revise, hear, read, write and apply. 

Over the course of their Phonics sessions, children will learn about:

  • Phonemes and graphemes
  • Blending and segmenting
  • Grammar sessions in Year 2
  • Spelling of ‘tricky’ words
  • Reading
