Phonics

At Freemantle Academy we teach phonics using framework suggested in the ‘Letters and Sounds’ government publication. We use a combination of Jolly Phonics actions and Cued Articulation actions. We use Jolly phonics actions for vowel sounds and Cued Articulation (CA) actions for consonant sounds. CA was devised to help all those who find it difficult to perceive, pronounce or sequence the sounds of spoken English.
