St Margaret's at Hasbury
At St Margaret’s at Hasbury, we teach phonics every day to all of our Early Years children (Reception to Year 2). Both teachers and learning support assistants have been trained to teach phonics to a high standard.Children are taught in groups of no more than 10 children, except for when they reach phase 6 in Year 2, where larger groups can be taught together.
High quality phonics teaching gives children a solid base on which to build as they progress through school. Children who master the mechanics of reading are well-placed to go on to develop a love of reading.Department for Education
