Phonics is taught in Early Years and Key Stage One using the DFE-validated scheme, Monster Phonics. Monster phonics helps children to read and recall spellings by using colour. Each sound and colour is also represented by a monster that makes that sound (a sound cue). This brings phonics to life and makes Monster Phonics highly engaging.

At Burscough Village Primary we want to:

  • Equip children to become readers for life
  • Equip the children to become effective spellers
  • Encourage children to see learning to spell as part of the process of learning to write
  • Understand word construction
  • Develop vocabulary and the ability to explore word
  • Apply phonic knowledge to reading and writing
