Daily Phonics

Starting Monday 27th April, your children will be able to access daily phonics lessons through letters and sounds which is the scheme that we use at Townfield.

The online lessons are designed to follow the phonics programme your child has been learning at school and have been approved and funded by the Department for Education. 

These lessons will be added daily between 10 and 11 am daily and will remain on the site to be used throughout Summer term.

The lessons are accessed via the Letter and Sounds youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/

The videos can be accessed at any time after they have been uploaded; a new lesson will be added daily between 10 and 11am. Feel free to amend your home timetable as appropriate to fit this in. 

When accessing lessons, you should select 'Year group your child is in and  Summer Term'
