What is phonics?

To find out more about phonics, take a look at our guides and progression maps:

Free Phonics Guidance and E-Books

You can access electronic versions of our phonetically decodable books and guidance about phonics by signing up for free to Oxford Owl. 


The most important thing you can do is read the phonetically decodable books (books which can be read by a child using their phonic knowledge) which are sent home with your child. To check you are pronouncing the sounds correctly, please watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXcabDUg7Q
