Phonics at Micklehurst

At Micklehurst All Saints CE Primary School we use First Class Phonics:


  • We have a high-quality, consistent approach to the teaching of phonics
  • We use child-friendly resources so that all children are actively engaged and having fun whilst practising and applying phonics
  • Our phonics lessons help to develop children’s vocabulary and promotes a love of reading
  • The scheme is matched to and exceeds the expectations of the EYFS ELGs and National Curriculum for Reading in KS1
  • First Class Phonics prepares children for success in the Phonics Screening Check and beyond
  • We have high expectations for developing early reading, spelling and writing
  • First Class Phonics enables children to immediately apply their new learning into reading or spelling within the phonics lesson
  • Individual reading books that children can take home are organised into phonically decodeable books that are banded into phases in line with the First Class Phonics Scheme.
