Weaverham Forest Primary School and Nursery

Phonic & Spelling

We follow the Sounds-Write Synthetic Phonics Program in school.

This process to teaching phonics involves placing the importance of sounds within a word, not as separate parts of a word.

The children engage in daily phonics sessions covering a range of activities including:

  • Building words with sounds
  • Dentifying the sounds in words and grouping these
  • Locating words with specific sounds
  • Reading words with multiple syllables that incorporate these sounds.

Please select the links below to view our most recent information meetings about how Sounds-Write works in school and how the processes can be incorporated when reading at home.



The PowerPoint slides can also be downloaded to view at your leisure.

Want to know more? Eager to put the Sounds-Write model into practice at home?
