Jolly Phonics 


How does Jolly Phonics work?

Using a synthetic Phonics approach, Jolly Phonics teaches children the Five Basic   Skills for reading and writing. Complemented by Jolly Readers and Jolly Grammar, it provides a thorough foundation for teaching literacy over three years in school.

The Five Skills taught in  Jolly Phonics

Learning the Letter Sounds: Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. This includes alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue with Stories, Actions and Rhymes.

Learning Letter Formation: Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.

Blending: Children are taught how to glide over the sounds and blend  together to read and write new words.

Identifying the Sounds in Words (Segmenting): Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.

Tricky Words: Tricky words have irregular spellings and children learn these separately
