A special mention to the year 6 pupils who leave us today; we sincerely wish you the very best as you move to secondary school, but offer an open invitation if any of you would like to come and see us in the future......... keep us informed of how things are going. Stay safe over the summer period and we look forward to seeing everone back on Thursday 2nd September- bright eyed and bushy tailed. .................. please keep an eye out for parentmails during the summer break as there is lots to share with you all........................Let us hope that next year is 'normal' and that we can enjoy being together in class and in school. Thanks to all the parents that have worked so hard to help their children through lockdowns, both academically and emotionally...........we know how difficult it was. Stay safe!

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.
