Phonics Scheme

At Saint Patrick's Phonics is taught through the use of Letters and Sounds and THRASS.

Letters and Sounds is a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.

 

THRASS stands for Teaching Handwriting, Reading And Spelling Skills.

THRASS is a whole-school phonics programme for teaching learners of all ages and abilities using pictures and keywords.

The THRASS programme helps learners to recognise the spellings and sounds in words. It teaches them about the 44 phonemes (speech sounds) of spoken English and the 120 graphemes (spelling choices) of written English.
