At Templars Academy the phonics scheme we follow is Song of Sounds to introduce phonemes. This is a hands-on systematic synthetic phonics programme that meets the learning needs of all children and makes phonics fun and memorable. The scheme is based around the sounds being sung to a familiar tune.
Although we introduce phonemes and remember them through Song of Sounds, we follow the progression of phonics set out in Bug Club, which is approved by the DfE. We use Bug Club books systematically and the Bug Club scheme online.
Feedback from parents: 'Great morning in class with my son and the new ways of learning phonics is fantastic for all the children, visual, sound, acting-sounds-singing. Can’t wait to visit again.'
